I seem to have a bit of a "green thumb" when it comes to raising critters. So I've decided to see how big of a rabbit I can breed and any comments or suggestions to reaching this goal would be welcome. I recently bred my biggest fawn Flemish giant pair together and she had 8 young they are about 5 weeks old she is still nursing them to some extent. 2 of this litter are huge the same size as some of my 5 month old half dwarf rabbits. When I've showed them to other rabbit raisers and told them how old they are the normally respond with an "oh my G*d"! None of them raise Flemish giants though so maybe this poll is a bit biased. Anyway my plan is to keep the biggest of the litter and bred them then continue to breed the biggest from all future litters. Anyone see any problems with this logic? I don't want to breed siblings together because I want a strong gene pool for this but should I bred back to their own sire/dam continuously or when should I introduce another unrelated big buck? I guess I'm looking for a breeding program spanning generations that will give me a healthy gene pool while still heading toward my size goal and maintaining a sane number of rabbits.
