Flemish Giant History

The Flemish Giant is the largest breed of rabbit. They originate from the Flanders region in Belgium and were originally bred for meat. The Flemish Giant was first bred in the 16th century making it an old breed. It is believed that the Flemish Giant is the result of breeding the Steenkonijn (‘stone rabbit’) with the european Patagonian rabbit. According to Thomas Coatoam, the first authentic record of the Flemish Giant was in 1860.

It is thought that the breed was imported to England mid 19th century, before being exported to America in the 1890s to improve the size of meat rabbits. The first breed standards were written in 1893, but it wasn’t until 1910 that the breed became more popular emerging in livestock shows across America. The breed is a very universal breed being popular not only as a pet but for showing, its meat, and for its fur.

The flemish giant weighs between 14 and 20 lbs.
