Proper Housing for Flemish Giants
In order to raise Flemish Giants properly, they require housing larger than the average sized
rabbit. Our rabbits are kept in pens that are built to allow access to the outside of the building. This
provides indoor shelter and outdoor access to fresh air. Our rabbits are raised in barns that are temperature controlled/climate
protected; complete with high velocity fans that continually circulate air throughout the cages, creating a gentle
breeze on the hottest days.
Inside or Outside?
All rabbits, especially the Flemish have to be protected from over-heating. Rabbits
do not handle extreme heat. Temperatures over 90 degrees F can be life threatening. Flemish Giant rabbits
are not bothered by cold temperature.
If keeping your rabbits outdoors, look for shady areas to protect them from
sun and heat. Rabbits must be sheltered from rain and snow, heat and wind.
