This is Reishi in early spring of 2014, about 4 1/2 as well.
Picture
This is his buck with Ophelia. He is only 4 1/2 months in this picture.
Reishi was 3/4 Am Chin and 1/4 Cali, out of Moonshine and Obi.  He was a huge buck and one of my best breeders.  Always quick to duty with 3-4 fall offs within minutes.  If I had a doe being difficult to breed I would always put them with Reishi.  He lost him this fall,  I think to wool block or some kind of digestive issue.  Luckily we kept a couple of his bucks and we are keeping the one above.  He is filling out nice and looks very similar to his sire.   We hope he proves himself to be as good of a producer as his papa.

This is the last photo we have of Reishi. He was 11 lbs. We lost him in the fall of 2014. He is missed.
 
 
We have had some interest in the history of our rabbits and their parents.  So we have listed some of our late and great rabbits with stock that we have kept kits from.  This is the beginning of our Hybrid Project of crossing American Chinchillas with Californias.  We have a new Cali name buttercup and are going to cross her with Wasabi our current Am Chin buck.
Picture
Obi- pure Am Chin, 10 1/4 lbs. He sired litters with an average of 8 kits. We had to put him down due to an intestinal issue at 3 years of age.
Picture
Pocket- pure Californian, 10 1/2 lbs. She had litters ranging from 8-13 kits, with an average of 9.5 kits.
Picture
Moonshine- 1/2 Am Chin (sire Obi) and 1/2 Cali (dame Pocket), 11 1/2 lb. While she had an average litter size of 7.6 kits she was my best mother and her kits would reach 5 lbs between 8-9 weeks.
Picture
Reishi- 3/4 Am Chin (sire Obi) and 1/4 Cali (dame Moonshine), a solid 11 1/2 lbs and my best breeding buck. He passed away from a respiratory issue in fall of 2014. He sired litter with an average of 10-12 kits. We have kept a buck from him with Ophelia as the dame.

Here are the past Silver Fox we have had.  We have kept a few Silver fox but are mostly focusing on our Am chin and crosses of that.  We have sold off most of our SF stock.  Sebastian to Flying blue dog nursery.  And Calypso, Hoshi and Galaxy as part of a trio to a rabbitry south of us.  
Picture
This is Calypso. He was 10lbs and we also had his sire Sebastian, a black silver fox that was 10 1/2 lbs. We sold Sebastian after keeping his daughter, Luna bella, whose dame was Hoshi. She has produced good size litters and is a solid rabbit weighting 10 1/2 lbs. So this would be her half brother.
Picture
Hoshi was one of my best fur pullers and milkers. We kept a doe from her, Luna Bella. Hoshi was 10 1/2 lbs. She had an average litter size of 9 kits.
Picture
Jupiter was one of our blue silver fox. He was over 10lbs and a good breeder. We have kept a buck from him and Galaxy. We had to put him down due to a severe tooth infection. He usually sired 9 kits as an average.
Picture
This is Galaxy. She had an average litter size of 9 kits and was 10 3/4 lbs.
