German hybrids angora rabbits are the results of breeding a purebred German angora to another breed of angora like English, French, Giant or even Satin.  The reason for breeding the German hybrid angora rabbit is to have the wonderful qualities of both breeds in one bunny.    To have a goal of what you are trying to breed for is best instead of breeding randomly. Our goal is to produce naturally colored dense  wool coats  that stay even in color and growth.  Selecting only the best rabbits for breeding will help work towards that goal. The Germans bring in the dense wool coats although most are REW (  that is slowly changing with the import of one black German).  The  English, French,  Satin and even some Giants  bring a variety of lovely colors.  Each individual angora breed brings in their own special qualities, so care should be taken to know the differences and what they offer before deciding on a breeding pair.  Hybrid rabbits are great rabbits and fun to raise. Each new generation can bring beautiful bunnies that are fun to raise and have  wool coats that are a joy to spin.
