    I have a rabbit that I was told was a Fawn Flemish Giant. Not sure of his age but I am thinking between 5-7 months. He weighs 4lbs. What do you think he is?? Thanks

    Quote:Um ? flemish giants at 6 weeks old weigh 4 lbs, by 5 -7 months they should weight between 8 and 10 lbs.
    Are you sure of the age? maybe 5 -7 weeks old?
    can you get a more clear picture?
    it looks on the small size so maybe just very young.
    be sure to give it plenty of hay along with his pelleted diet. keep things moving if he is as young as he looks.
    best part about Flemish is they are more like forever puppys.
    I loved mine.

    Maybe this will help, I do have a few more pics I will try to post. He has already developed his testicles. So I dont think he is real young. But he is the sweetest, he has the best temperment. Thanks

    Im sorry to say if his boy parts have denceded at this age he is likely a cross, not pure flemish and will likely not grow any bigger.
