Successful Rearing of Flemish Giant Rabbits
I have been breeding rabbits since I was 14, so nearly 10 years now. I have experience with Dwarfs, Lionheads, Angolas, Flemish Giants... and many others breeds.

Breeding rabbits has been a favourite hobby of mine, and at this stage has made it on to my resume. Its always a great talking point in an interview and I love being able to give tips and advice from my own experience.

I have had ups and downs with it, as I'm sure any breeder can relate but I enjoy the challenge.
Before I purchased my two Flemish Giant rabbits, I tried to do as much research as possible about the breed. All areas of research came back with the same conclusion - Flemish giant does are not the most maternal breed. The breeding process itself is quite easy- we all know the saying "breeding like rabbits"! Writing from my own experience, I've had still births to rabbit cannibalism (twice), maternal abandonment and some kits just not surviving past a few days old.
