Rabbit Breeding Questions.

    So I have a female rex rabbit. I was wondering if I could breed her with a Californian giant? Or would that be to much for her. I've had rabbits almost all my life, and bred them quite a couple times too, but I've stayed with a constant rex blood line. So I don't know if I would be able to cross them.

    You should be fine!! I have a Holland lop that I am hoping to cross with a Flemish giant.. just for fun.. however I think I will use a male lop and a female giant!!! Now I have a question for you... My Flemish giant doe went lame in her back legs... Did that ever happen to you?? I am not sure what to do about it!!

    Would it work with a female rex and male giant? I only have a female and my uncle has the male. I just want to be sure because I don't want her having complications during birth.

    there is one rule for breeding just about any animal: male and female same size or female larger than male. while sometimes a large male and smaller female can have good babies other times its a death sentence for the mom or serious injury's . I WOULD NOT recommend you breeding a small female with a large male.
    Hope this helps!
