THE GIANTS

The Giants category is just what it implies.These are huge rabbits, and not recommended for the first time rabbit breeder or for a rabbit novice. Due to their sheer size, it can be difficult to handle these animals without causing damage to their spines. So, breeding these should be left to those with a few years’ worth of experience under their belt or with commercial farm facilities.

They eat quite a lot and produce a vast amount of waste compared to smaller varieties. They also require a quite a bit more room due to their size and are prone to sore or damaged hocks if left to stand on cage wire for long periods.

Of the Giants, the Flemish Giant is one of the most popular and is often bred with other rabbits to produce larger varieties and new breeds. The second most popular is likely the French Lop. As with all Giants, these rabbits take longer to mature on average than their smaller counterparts.
