    I just wondered out of curiosity how much people's rabbits weigh and their ages?

    Everybody thinks Stan is huge but i cant see him growing and getting a bit worried that he may be too skinny although he never stops eating! lol

    Hi there,

    I have a BG doe called ebony. She's 5 months old and weighs just over 6lbs. I thought that was quite big but then I went and visited a friend who has got conti's and she looked so tiny when I got back!! My other rabbit is a lop and only weighs 4lbs!! :)

    Normi looked thinner when he had lost his baby coat because he was dead fluffy and made him look rounder - now he looks leaner! He gets plenty to eat though! x

    Stan is a continental giant. He is 24 weeks and was weighed at the vets today at being 5.2 kilo which is 11./4 lbs, but im not sure if this is an ideal weight for a conti at this age so was just wondering! x

    WOW!! That's huge!! He's about the same age as my ebony aswell an weighs nearly twica as much as her! He's gonna be a big boy! He is totally gorgeous though, I didn't realise there was that much of a difference between british n conti's!

    Ha ha yeah and i want more and more they are addictive believe me!! Stan is a blue conti but i would like a steel one next! Dave on my signature is was also a conti and he was lovely too! :D

    Kelly - Contis are bigger buns than british giants, contis are the biggest breed of rabbits, but i have seen a few huge british giants that are bigger than contis! And if they are anything like contis then they dont stop growing til about 2 year old, but i dont think there is that much difference between them! :D

    Have you got any pics of Ebony? x

    Hehehe:D

    I take the scales into her shed, weigh myself and then weigh myself holding ebby. Then the difference is how much ebby weighs! Lol. Its ok if you can pick them up! Ebby loves her snuggles so she's ok!!

    The lady who I mentioned earlier with the conti's has also got a black male british giant, so hopefully when she's old enough. She'll have a litter of babies cuz the woman said she looks brill and has a great temperament for a giant x :eek:
