Hi Wis and Jacy! I'm watching paranormal shows and might have to lay down for a bit. I can hardly keep my eyes open.

Beautiful breed! Many years ago, one of my friends had an X who bred rabbits. We once went to a place that sold various breeds. I remember seeing these giant rabbits, they were huge and just gorgeous! Forget the name of them but I had no idea they could get that big. So cool!


The kind that are as big as something like a Spaniel or a Beagle? Those are Flemish Giants, and yeppers, they're huge! I think they average 20 lbs, and get between 2 and 3 feet long. That's the kind hubs wanted before we settled on ours, the bigger they get, the more they eat & the more hutch space they need. I had to remind hubby a rabbit can eat it's body size in hay alone daily, and that plus supplemental pellets and fresh daily veggies would get pretty expensive quickly.

Not only that, the hutch would have to be custom built to accommodate one that large with a humane amount of space. They need their "safe" spaces even if they're free roamers -- ours is only 4 lbs, but has over 24 square feet of combined space on both his hutch's levels, and I'm not satisfied it's large enough (he has twice the minimum living space for his size) He's an odd rabbit, though. All the space he has, and he prefers to lay down on the ramp to his upstairs, lol.

For a Flemish, the hutch would have to be at least 18 square feet. But I prefer two-level hutches so they have plenty of room, so my standard would be at least 36 square feet for one. And they have to be at least as tall as bunny is so they can stand & stretch, so 3 feet tall for a single level, or 6 (!!) for a two-level.

That's not even including an enclosed run for extra exercise space, either. Since we just leave the hutch doors open and he comes and goes as he pleases, there's no need for a run. He won't roam the house, he won't even leave the living room (we accidentally trained him to not leave it, it wasn't intentional -- blocked off the hall to the stairs so he wouldn't get stepped on and now he won't go that way at all) He's not left unsupervised, but some people "bunny proof" their homes and let their rabbits have the run of the house like a cat or dog.

I'd love a Rhinelander or Hotot someday in addition to our buddy, though!

YES! Flemish Giants! I was too tired to look it up earlier. I was shocked when I first saw them as I had never heard of them before. Very cool though! I was like...WOW!
You are very knowledgable about rabbits. Once a person gets any kind of a pet, they should research it to know how to properly care for them. Sadly, many people don't.

Good Morning, pouring some magical coffee while staying on schedule.

My inner clock woke me up with out an alarm, 3:45 sharp, if I don't stay on my time regiment my poor body will tell me.
Being a natural lifelong early bird it is all good.

Bert inspired this picture.

Coffee any one?

I am having a blast. Whipping up a Chilli with lots of punch, a semi Irish Stew, and cleaning.


I am so grateful to still have a roof over my head. Whoosh

Wis, you were up before I even went to bed. Magical coffee? How delightful! Yes, I'll have some. Love the pics!

Light, hello! Agreed, that would have been too early for me as well.

Chirp, I'm too tired to even think of cleaning right now. Love the little owl! It reminded me of this pic that got to TrueBrit every time. LOL

I'll be twit-twooing in the trees until WIS gets back with that chilli. I'll stay awake all night with very-wide eyes for a good chilli.

LOL, and here I thought it was an owl I heard. If you need to sleep, I'm sure Wis will gladly save you some. I'll take some too, I don't feel like cooking. Oh, I forgot I have yummy left overs. Right now, I just want and need my coffee.

Nice to see you Matthew.

Sure guys, it is ready. Take as much ass you want. Don't be shy, there is enough for everyone.


It is a little "spicy" and very special so be careful.

'ello Brent! How are you today? Woke up with my leg on fire and hurting, not the best way to greet the day, but I took my meds and feel better.

Not bad. I think I'm getting the cold that my mother and Grandmother have even though I've been trying to avoid them and stay down stairs
