What are Satin Rabbits?
From the American Rabbit Breeder’s Association (ARBA):
Satins first appeared in a litter of Havanas owned by Walter Huey of Pendleton, IN in 1934. After consulting with Harvard University geneticists it was concluded that this was a simple mutation that was unlike anything seen in the rabbit world. From those humble beginnings the Satin Rabbit was born. First called Satin Havanas, these rabbits with the brilliant sheen were later renamed Satins. Today exhibitors can enjoy showing Satins in 11 brilliant colors. The Satins and Mini Satins (affectionately called Team Sheen) are grouped under one specialty club. – Maximum weight 11 lbs.
