Flem­ish Gi­ant

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Feature -

ADULT WEIGHT: 5-7kg LIT­TER SIZE: large, 6-12 kits

The Flem­ish Gi­ant is a very large rab­bit, but it’s typ­i­cally not grown for meat un­less you’re pa­tient and not as in­ter­ested in the

eco­nom­ics of feed-to-meat con­ver­sion. Flem­ish Giants spend most of their first year grow­ing a heavy bony car­case, and take much longer to grow to rea­son­able eat­ing size. How­ever, if you want a breed where young rab­bits could be sold on as pets and you ate those which don’t sell, they can be rea­son­able.
