    Welcome to BYC![​IMG]

    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.
