What is a Flemish Giant?
Flemish Giants are amongst the largest breeds of rabbits in the world. They are very docile and calm, and highly popular in the show circuits.

How do I care for my Flemish Giant?
These giant rabbits require more money and time than a lot of the smaller breeds of rabbits. They must have larger hutch/cages with solid floors, such as wood, or if on a wire, they will require sturdy resting mats to give their feet a break; otherwise sore hocks can quickly become a problem.
They also require enough room in the hutch to be able to move around freely and to stretch out without any body parts touching the walls from side to side,or end to end.
Plus, the hutch should be tall enough that the Flemish Giant can stand up on his hind legs without the tips of his ears touching the ceiling.
In regard to feed, they tend to do best on unlimited high-quality pellets containing 16-18% protein and a good amount of fiber. Providing them with unlimited timothy hay will also make up for a pellet containing lower fiber contents. As always, all rabbits require a clean fresh supply of water,
and they may have rabbit-safe treats in moderation; such as veggies and fruits.
