|Purpose||Rabbits in the UK|
To enter most rabbit shows, participants must be Council members and their rabbits must have a metal ring around one hind leg registered in their name. In breed classes, the rabbits are judged to a standard. Shows are rated from 1* to 5*, 1* being the lowest and 5* the highest.
There are over 60 breeds recognised by the British Rabbit Council and over 500 varieties. These are divided into four groups - Fancy, Lop, Normal Fur, Rex.
The British Rabbit Council was formed in 1934 when the British Rabbit Society and the National Rabbit Council of Great Britain and her Dominions merged.
