*WATCH* The Beveren was recognized in 1898 and was named after the town of its origin in the Waas region of western Belgium. Today’s Beveren is recognized in three color varieties: solid blue, solid black, and a blue-eyed white. They are certainly a multi-purpose rabbit used for meat and fur. Litters are large, the young grow fairly fast, and the does are typically docile and make good mothers. The Beveren is a hardy breed that is easily reared in all wire hutches.
