I have a continental giant bunny I just got who is 17 weeks old and I thought he would be much bigger than he is. He weighs about 9 lbs 7 oz and looks pretty lean. I don't feel any bones and he doesn't feel underweight but I thought he would be much bulkier than he is. I have owned American Flemish giants and at this age felt they were much bulkier than this one. Do they grow at a slower rate? Are they bigger length wise so not as bulky as a American Flemish? I have his pedigree and his lineage was in the 17 to 20 lb range. I posted a picture but was hoping to get a little more info on there growth rate and how to gauge how big he might get. Any info would be greatly appreciated

There are not a lot of people on here that raise continentals. I found an old thread that has some weights in it. It sounds like yours is a little small but he may mature out after a year of age. With large breed anything slow growth is the key. So make sure he’s on a good balanced pellet and getting gets lots of hay.

I do have a friend who had a continental and he was BIG boned dude for sure. I don’t know his exact weight though
