About Us

100 Days Rabbitry is located in Atlanta, Georgia and specializes in the production of high quality, purebred New Zealand White breeding stock for those who are starting meat rabbit husbandry and searching for  superior foundation stock.  100 Days Rabbitry was created to address demand for quality New Zealand White breeding stock in Georgia.

With the decline in the economy, many people are looking to raise their own food to protect themselves for inflating food prices.  Many others are looking for a source of quality, organic meat in their pursuit for better health.  Others have a growing concern that our food industry farming practices are environmentally damaging and are looking a source of locally grown food that is ecologically friendly and responsible.   Meat rabbits are a great solution for addressing these different concerns and as such there is a growing interest meat rabbit husbandry.  However, there are not enough high quality meat rabbit operation currently in existence to meat the demands of this growing interest.  Since we believe passionately in all three of the aforementioned concerns, we decided to pursue a responsible, high-quality New Zealand White breeding program to meet the demands in our local area.

For the purpose of meat production, the New Zealand White rabbit should reach market weight of 4.5 to 5 pounds 100 days from conception.  This 100 day period consists of an approximately 30 day gestation period, followed by a 70 day (10 week) post-birth, growth period.  The primary goal of our breeding program is to produce high quality New Zealand White rabbits for growth to market weight in 100 days from conception, and hence the namesake for our rabbitry name:  ‘100 Days Rabbitry’.

We selectively breed our rabbits for the following:

  • Fast development/growth rate to market weight
  • Large size at maturity meeting or exceeding but  never falling short of New Zealand White breed specification
  • Excellent musculature and meat/bone ratio
We selectively breed our does for the following:
  • Large litter sizes.
  • Good maternal instincts for nest building and pulling fur
  • Good maternal instincts for birthing youngs (birthing youngs in nest and not on bare wire)
  • Good maternal instincts for rearing youngs (not cannibalizing, trampling on, or exposing youngs to elements)
  • High milk production to sustain large litter sizes
  • Ability to hold condition through heavy nursing
  • High conception rate
  • Ease of breeding
  • Good temperament
