Hi,

Im going to collect a British Giant baby tomorrow he's 14 weeks old does anyone have one how large is it .Ive reserved a male.

Ive just got a huge hutch made ready , ive had beverans/ californiasbefore but not a British Giant.Anyone got any pics of one orhas one to give me an idea of how big it will be .I presume it will bequite large at 14 weeks even though its still a baby.
 

Its going to be as bigas if not bigger than a Flemish, they are very large and beautiful Giants, Your so Lucky . Ihave wanted one for monthsafter seeing one on someoneswebsite .

The British Giant was developed in the 1940s from the Flemish, usingAmerican stock as they are bred in different colours in the UnitedStates, not just Steel Grey. The breeders formed a British Giant Clubwhich was successful for six or seven years then was disbanded. In 1981a new club was started up and a new standard recognised. Some fanciersin Britain felt that confining the Flemish to Steel Grey has kept itsweight down. Just recently, the BRC put the Flemish Giant on the rarerabbits list as so few people breed them now in Britain.""
