Breeding and raising quality rabbits

                Flemish Giants

The Flemish Giant originated in Belgium. It is uncertain which breedes or types of rabbits were used in its development. One scenario entials Dutch traders bringing giant Patagonian rabbits from Argentina to Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. However, according to another expert's research, there were no giant rabbits in South American, and it is most likely that the Patagonian was just another Belgium breed of giant rabbit.  Weighing about 14 pounds, the early Flemish Giant was an impressive rabbit who, according to some fanciers, had long ears with bent tips. By the 1850s, numerous clubs for the giant rabbits existed in the Flemish region of Belgium. The breed was found in only two colors, gray agouti with a white belly and iron gray with a dark belly.  In the late 1800s, new colors were developed and the rabbit no longer had bent ear tips. The giant rabbits were exported to other European countires, including Germany and Great Britain. Flemish Giants were first imported into the United States from Belgium and Great Britian during the 1890s. The breed was recognized by the ARBA (American Rabbit Breeders Association) in 1910.
