Field Descriptions

Category - You can define how to categorize your rabbits, such as their purpose (show rabbits vs meat rabbits), where they came from, etc. In addition, you can create as many or as few categories as you would like, they don’t have to be used either.

Learn how to use categories HERE.

Prefix - The prefix of a rabbit refers to who owns/owned that rabbit. Most breeders have prefixes for their rabbitry name such as “FBR = Funny Bunny Rabbitry”. If the rabbit was born on your property then you can put your name or rabbitry name in this field. You can add a personal prefix when editing your profile under “Settings”, this prefix will automatically apply to any litters you record.

Note: If you have received a rabbit from another person, you put the name or rabbitry name of the previous owner.

Name - The common name, or barn name, of the rabbit you are editing.

ID - More commonly called an “ear tattoo”, a rabbit’s ear tattoo is found on the left ear of a rabbit. A fiscal ear tattoo is needed to ID each rabbit in your care. This is useful if you have a lot of rabbits and especially if they are all the same color. The ID number is given by the original breeder and cannot be altered by anyone else. It does not have to be the predetermined number Everbreed gives the rabbit upon creation of the profile.

Cage # - The number or location of the rabbit in your rabbitry.

Color - The color of the rabbit.

You can learn more about rabbit genetics and colors HERE.

Weight - The last recorded weight of the rabbit. You can change how the Weight Units appear in your account settings.

Championship Number - The Championship number is reserved for rabbits who have won at least 3 ARBA sanctioned shows. Visit if you wish to learn more about rabbit Championship numbers.
