About Flemish Giant Rabbits



rnrnFlemish Giant Rabbits were developed in the Flanders regionrnof Europe where it was recorded as occurring in Belgium in the sixteenthrncentury.rnrn 

rnrnBefore and during World War II, it was very common in Europernto see these large easy-care rabbits being raised by children, who fed them onrngarden produce, to provide cheap and healthy meals in hard times.

rnrnThe adult weight of a Flemish Giant is around 6.4 kilogramsrnfor a buck and 6.8 kilograms for a doe. Breeders aim for a long body lengthrnwith a large rump, and the ears having a length of around 150 millimeters – thernlonger the better. By nature they are considered to be “gentle giants.”

rnrnrnIt can take 12 to 14 months for a doe to reach its adultrnweight and be ready for mating. To maintain the rabbit’s health and to give itrna long life, some breeders recommend breeding a doe only once a year, as thisrnwill give the kits the best growing time they can get from being with theirrnmother. Weaning can take place when they are from eight to ten weeks old.

rnrnThey are found in black, white, light grey, sandy, blue,rnfawn, and steel grey.
