I might be putting this in the wrong area, so mods please move if necessary.
How fast do flemish giant babies grow? Is there an ideal weight they should hit by a certain age? Nebula was 4# when I got him a little over a week ago. On Monday, he had gained a 1/2lb, which I think is probably normal. I just want to make sure he is growing fine, and be able to track his growth.

That's pretty good growth for a Junior Flemish. Some Flemish, especially the bucks seem to slow down at 7-8 months and don't reach minimum show weight until 9-10 months of age. I don't consider a Flemish full grown until 12-14 months (especially the boys).
