My rabbitry is located in Howell, Michigan. I have been breeding and showing rabbits for the last nine years and as of 2010 I have focused my attention on the Polish breed. I have always had a lot of pride in my animals welfare, and always take care that they have the healthiest environment to grow up and thrive. You can identify a rabbit of my breeding by the tattoo number, which will begin with RT. I usually have rabbits for sale, but when I don't, I will happily help try directing your attention to another breeder in the area. I breed black, blue, broken, chocolate and red eyed whites rabbits in my rabbitry. I am no longer selling pet quality Polish at this time, but I am always happy to help other breeders and 4H-ers.

Also known as "The Little Aristocrat," the Polish is one of the smallest breeds of rabbits with the maximum weight at 3 1/2 pounds and the ideal weight at 2 1/2. Polish are known for their small compact bodies, short ears and large expressive eyes. Polish have winning temperament too. They are calmer than any arch breed, and when worked with, crave your attention. On the other hand, when neglected and let alone in a cage for long periods of time, they can be very fearful and may even become aggressive. Fearful aggressive animals when neglected is not specific to the Polish breed, or even the rabbit species for that matter.
The less experienced eye may mistake a Polish for a Netherland Dwarf, however, there are some notable differences. The Netherland Dwarf has a much higher head carriage then a Polish, and their ears are usually shorter then the Polish. The Netherland Dwarf also comes in 24 Varieties. The Polish on the other hand only comes in 6: black, blue, broken, chocolate, REW, and BEW. The biggest difference in my opinion is that the Polish has a fly back coat and the Netherland Dwarf has a roll back coat. Fly back and roll back refer to the speed the fur takes to return to its original position when stroked backwards, and a Polish rabbit will be disqualified from competition if it has a roll back coat.
The Polish is very good for beginner rabbit handlers. With their winning temperament, small size, and all the help and support from breeders like me, you can become a successful breeder, and a happy pet owner.
