    i have wanted to get meat rabbits for over a year, and a friend is getting out of them, so......

    They are 1/4 flemish giant, 3/4 newzealand. if we sexed them right, they are both females. i will get a male from a lady down the road who raises rabbits for market. if one of these turns out to be a male, we will have to cull it and get another female.

    i thought it would be harder to convince dh, since he doesn't like cleaning them, but ti was sooo easy! I guess he knew it was inevitable, so why fight it...

    it is easy to tell the difference between an unfixed male and a female. Though Im not sure I should elaborate [​IMG] Sugar and Spice are very cute.

    Quote:Not fixed- what sex.

    they are immature, so its not that easy, but we think we got it right.

    I hope when you call them "meat rabbits" in their hearing range, you spell it out. They are so cute, cuter than most pet rabbits I've seen.
