Flemish Giants

General Information from www.FlemishGiant.net


The Flemish Giant is a very old and popular breed due to its large size originally bred in the 16th century around the city of Ghent, Belgium. Their weight can be from 13 pounds to as large as 28 pounds.  They usually live between 5 and 10 years. 

Today they are one of the most popular breeds. There are seven standard colors:  black, blue, fawn, light gray, sandy, steel gray and white.

They are very docile and laid back which makes them a very friendly pet and companion.  They are easily litter trained which will allow them to have free run of the home if desired.  They do not require much attention to grooming due to their short hair.

They should have hay on a regular basis, preferably timothy hay.  It is also recommended that they have 2-6 cups of chopped dark green leafy vegetables per day depending on size.*

All in all, these friendly animals make great pets as well as a great show animal.

*Words of Caution:  if greens or vegetables are given, they should very slowly be worked up from a teaspoon amount to more, otherwise it could upset the bunny belly causing unnecessary pain, removal from food, possibly death in extreme circumstances.  Slow and easy in the food department works best for both of you to stay happy.
