Welcome to BYC!:frow

 

There isn't a lot of meat rabbit activity on this site these days; there is a bit more on our sister site, Backyard Herds

 

BackYardHerds.com

 

Hope you can find what you want to know there!

I got 2 (hopefully) pregnant does 10 days ago.  I'm pretty sure one is preggers, but I'm not sure about the other.  I really wish they weren't so ****** cute.

We keep flemish giants. Not the best at feed conversion, but we love the breed. Many people cross a giant with a new zealand to improve the growth rates.

Continental giant is my favourite breed of rabbits! I just love them!
I do keep rabbits for meat. I have Blue Silver Fox, Chinchilla and am looking for new zealand white does.
Oh and I have some sort of cross breed baby doe.
