All credits are given to Judge Mike D'Amico of Ohio who generously gave permission to me to share this diagram.


























NOTE: Diagram is not drawn to correct 5 pound size, but it IS drawn to the correct proportion of shape and parts.

Remember:  DEPTH SHOULD EQUAL WIDTH. The body should be the same height (depth) as it is wide. That high point should be 2/3 of the distance from the correctly posed nose. Viewed from the back, the rabbit's butt should look round as a basketball, and again showing same width as depth.


Notice the top slopes from the neck upward to the high point. There should NOT be any dip in the shoulders.

Now select 3 of your fryers that have the same type, hopefully matching the diagram above.
