    For sure, the steel grey is not flemish, or full flemish. Flemish giants never have blue eyes, and seven pounds is the average weight of a smaller rabbit like a mini lop.

    The person who sold him to me was very adamant that it was a full Flemish buck it was just a smaller one and he doesn't color match breed them properly

    The one in the bottom picture does look at least part flemish to me. But 10 lbs would be small.

    I've always thought flop ear means not pure Flemish??? my Flemish Giant Doe is 13.5 pounds which is a bit on the small side but for New Zealand, not bad! your boys are beautiful though. they will most likely be crossed with Flemish, which is sad if you have been told they are pure flemish. A lot of breeders do this in New Zealand...:mad:

    I thought so! I just didn't want to be wrong, as I've actually never seen a lionhead rabbit for real personally! the Flemish giants you got look like they have nice ears which is what you want on them! how old are they?
