I have only been on this forum for about a month but I am enjoying my time here reading about everyones bunnies..
I adopted my bunny Billy from a breeder who bred rabbits to be eaten *MEAT RABBITS*
He is a Giant Flemish and was 10 weeks old when I got him. He is soo cute and super friendly.
I have never had a Flemish before so I am looking forward to see how big he gets.
My 5 year old daughter picked him out of a litter of about 8 bunnies who were all cramped in a tiny cage awaiting their fate.
As where older litters and new born litters all waiting to be sold for food and probably their fur.
I would of loved to have taken all of them, but i'm extremely happy with giving Billy a new free range life.
When the lady handed me our bunny she said to the rabbit, your a lucky bunny.
Billy Bunny is now 16 weeks old and hes very spoilt. He loves to be patted and held. Loves free ranging running around our enclosed backyard. Where he helps himself to the vegie garden and he binkies non stop. Its like having a puppy, he follows you around and if you go outside and call him he comes running.
I have a thread on here called Watching Baby Billy Grow if anyone is interested in watching him grow.
Has anyone taken in a Meat Rabbit as their own pet or maybe helped rehome one or maybe you are a Flemish owner.. I would love to hear your story..
Thanks for reading..
