- Florida White. They have been around since 1967, and were developed in the United States. They were bred to be a white, cobby, medium sized meat rabbit. 4-6 lbs. You can learn more from the breed club.
- French Lop - a 10lb meat rabbit with lopped ears. Colour doesn't matter for showing. They have a bulky big head and are gorgeous if you see them in purpose. :) Club.
- French Angora - these meat rabbits are predominately raised for their wool. They have a clean face with tufts on their ears. 7.5-10 lbs. They are very cute! Club.
- Flemish Giant - with a mandolin body build these bunnies grow to 14-25 lbs and come in black, blue, steel, fawn sandy, light grey and white. I have never seen a black flemish but I think if I would ever breed them, I'd want to do it in black. Breed Club.
Rabbits New to Me
Fauve de Bourgogne this is a medium to large sized rabbit that comes our way from France. They range in size from 7-11 lbs and carry their erect ears over a red/orange body.
Switzerland gives us the all white Fox, a 6.5-11 rabbit.
I find it fascinating those weight ranges. It might make it frustrating to work with if you want 10 lbs rabbit and then you brought in a rabbit from smaller lines. You'd not want to toss your whole lines...but it would be frustrating to build them up again.
