Astrex Rabbit Genetics

Astrex, curly / wavy rex fur is supposed to be an autosomal monogenic recessive…meaning non sex chromosome linked and a one gene recessive. It is recessive to rex fur type and other fur types…and extremely rare.

It is my personal belief, and theory, of nearly four years, that we will one day prove it is also modifier color linked and/or dilution and/or broken color linked.

Astrex (curly/wavy) rex fur first appeared as a "sport" mutation and still does today although Astrex are nearly completely extinct to the rabbit world.

My book on Astrex Rabbits will soon be available. It is a soft cover approximately 80 pages and a complete booklet of 4 years of compiled Astrex information gathered from anywhere and everywhere. It took nearly that long to compile bits and tiny scraps of information on Astrex.
