The Checkered Giant is considered a show rabbit rather than a meat rabbit. As such, it won’t have the muscle mass that meat giants of the same size would have.
The Checkered Giant is black and white spotted. Its ears, nose and around the eyes will be solid black or blue. Body type markings differ between the European and American Checkered Giants, although they are considered the same breed.
Checkered Giants bucks should weigh at least 11 lbs., with mature Does averaging 12 lbs. It is outweighed by the Flemish Giant and Giant Chinchilla. These are not known to be child- friendly, and are rather active rabbits.
