What we do

The ASRBA is the official national specialty for both the Satin and Mini Satin breeds, otherwise known as: “The Team with Sheen”Whether you are a seasoned breeder of Mini Satins and Satins or new to the world of rabbit breeders, you are welcome here.

From rabbits with ‘heft’ to ‘fancier’ types, or maybe a little bit of both, Satins and/or Mini Satins will fit the bill! Both breeds feature the unique, smooth and glossy transparent hair shaft that is what puts the ‘Satin’ in Satins and Mini Satins.



Mini Satins are the ‘junior’ member of “Team Sheen” and fall under the ARBA’s ‘Compact’ body type classification. The ideal mature body weight for both bucks and does is 4 lbs. If you love variety, these mini members of the ‘Satin’ team have it in spades! Current accepted varieties for Mini Satins are: Black, Blue, Broken, Chinchilla, Chocolate, Chocolate Agouti, Copper, Himalayan*, Opal, Otter* , Lilac, Lynx, Red, Siamese*, Silver Marten*, Squirrel, Tortoise*, and White.
