      This is Billy Bunny, he is my giant Flemish baby.

      I got him 2 weeks ago when he was 10 weeks old.

      He has settled in very fast and is super quiet.

      He loves his cat toys and toilet rolls.

      Billy will jump up onto your lap for a pat or just flop down next to you.

      He loves being out the back in the garden running through the dirt and doing binkies.

      He will come up to you for a quick pat and off he goes again.

      Oh and he likes to sleep on my feet

      Looking forward to watching him grow as this is my first giant Flemish.

      I will update you all with photos and how he’s going a couple times a week if you would like to see him grow too.

      Billy aka Bunny my giant Flemish is now 14 weeks old..
      He is such a placid bunny, he follows you around the backyard like a puppy..
      If your digging in the garden he will come up and stick his nose in to see what your doing..
      He runs around the yard doing binkies only stopping to have a quick munch on the grass..
      When he’s had enough he just flops down anywhere and has a rest..
      Billy’s colour is changing, its getting lighter grey with white, his fur is soo soft..
      He loves his tucker and eats lots..

      Moshu is either a florida white or a polish white. Both the breeds are quite similar so I never precisely got to know which one is her.

      Yes I had a bit of trouble at first.. I couldn’t do it by my mobile but on computer it was easier.. You have to resize your photos first . Don’t do the quick reply, you need to click on the dark green box above with cross in it.. Then u upload your photo and attach and send..
      When you do get the photos, please send some as I still would like to see them at 7 months.

      Hi everyone,

      Billy is now 20 weeks old or 5 months..

      He is growing into a very placid, funny boy..

      He loves to just hang out and dig in the garden..

      Doesn’t have a problem at being picked up and cuddled..

      Follows you around everywhere and comes inside if door is left open.

      He has also worked out how to let himself out of the house by pushing on the back screen door.

      Hello BunLuv,
      Yes he does walk on the floorboards but only for little bit, he doesn’t venture far and he walks around very slowly.
      If I call him inside he’ll walk in only a few steps, I shut the screen and he pushes the door and walks back out.

      Ah, that would be tricky then… lol.

      So there’s a question for the intelligent BBers out there, HOW TO WEIGH A BUNNY WITHOUT SCALES?

      Place bunny in a large (can’t jump out of) bucket attached to a broom handle balanced over the shoulders of Annmaree and her +1 putting packets of rice in the other bucket hanging off the other end….to find the horizontal balance…. Yes, I have a good imagination….. !! :o)

      I use kitchen ones with my birds, they know they get a treat for sitting on it so fly right to it when it’s out. I think the human one would be easier with a bunny though if I wanted to do the same trick. Scale = treats.

      I used a big bowl to weigh Willow on the kitchen one, she really didn’t like it and neither did I. I’d much rather her like the scale, so I’m going to try and find something inexpensive that can fit a bunny butt on it.

      Yeah he does look a bit smaller. I think it’s because when he’s being held by my 6 year old daughter he’s just all loose and floppy, he just hangs there. And when he’s out eating on grass he’s bunched up..

      He’s got a lovely face – in my one Vienna Blue experience, she “filled out” after 12months and pretty much doubled in weight….
      I don’t think she got much ‘longer’, if you know what I mean. (I didn’t think she had and then I saw photos of her at 1yr, and at 20 months….. errr, YEs she did !!)LOL

      Hi Vienna Blue,
      I hope he does fill out more more.. You don’t really notice the little spirts of growth when you see them all the time. That’s why I take lots of photos, so you can look back on them and really see how big he has gotten..
