    I got two young flemish giants recently in a swap. Was supposed to be a male and a female, and I think it is. Just wanted to double check, though, as these are my first rabbits and I am just learning. These bunnies are 10 weeks old now and I've had them for a month. They have grown a ton, and after Easter I'm hoping to pick up a third Flemmie so I have a 1.2. Want an orange, but really it depends on what is available from the idiots who think rabbits are Easter decorations. Down the line I want to get a rex and a NZ red for making meat crosses.

    Well shoot. There is a saga here. I originally got three. I was told was a boy and two girls. They ID'd the bun in the top photo as the male, and so when I realized the third bun was a boy, I sold him thinking he was an extra male. So now I have to find another boy. Haha, well. At least these buns are really friendly, even if they are escape artists bent on doing whatever the heck they want whenever the heck they want.

    Edit to say thank you to you lovely people. And again when I realized the silver bun should probably get a name change.. "his" name is Mal.

    The first looks male to me, the second female. When I blow the pictures up, I see details of structure that a doe wouldn't have on the first one, and my partner-in-crime DD agrees.
