Our rabbits are big. They are of the German Chequered Giant breed, which is the second largest breed of rabbit. (The largest is the Belgian Giant Rabbit). This breed is relatively unusual in Sweden. It is characterised by its special appearance; a stripe along its spine, a co-called butterfly marking on its nose, rings around its ears, cheek spots, and spots on either side of its body. They weigh at least 6 kgs when fully grown. Our male is black and white and our female is brown. They are called August and Lotta.
