I dont have any giants but would have thought they need either a room or shed, not a hutch or cage :) x

not exacly a flemish... but same size!!
(contis)

we had a small alley on the side of our house, and the fence, so we decided to put the buns here! its got a door, and i dont THINK foxes can get in so its pretty secure. they have 24 hour acsess to this, the hutch it always open for them, but i think its too small for them! (4.5ft x 2ft!! :oops:) they dont sleep in it, they use it to poo!!. they mostly sleep on the ground of their...... enclosure! :D all together its about 14ftX3ft!!!!

Hi,I have one flemish and four contis.They have free range to a big garden all day.Ive just moved them outside at night because the weather has got so hot.They have twelve foot runs with a three foot nest box chained to the run.In the winter three live in a double garage and the other two live in a 20x20ft utility room at night.

a fox can jump over 6ft from a stand-still... then factor in what good climbers they are :? I'd secure a roll of mesh over their run if i were you :)

I don't have a flemish, but a pair of conti giants who live in a 10' x 6' shed with a run, but they hae lots of free time in the garden too whilst I'm home.

The bigger the accommodation the better, as they need to be able to run and jump and stretch.
My Hera is nearly 4ft long when she's in full stretch.

BB Mommy, I was just thinking your set up doesn't look that big, then I thought again how big conti are and then thought how huge their home is! :lol:

I would be putting some mesh over the top as i too have seen a fox clear a six foot fence from standing.

I have seen this too, but as the average Conti is as big as a fox and can probably gut it with a kick my money would be on the rabbit! :lol:
Mesh would deter thieves too though.

I have a Flemish, but I have her in the house with a Frenchie.

Never be under the illusion your bunny won't be taken by a fox....Foxes will take lambs..so a large rabbit won't deter it..
better to be safe than the rabbits paying the price:cry:

Hiya, new to the site and although I've had my rabbit over 2 years, I've only just found out that she's a Flemish Giant, I love her to pieces, but have got to look at other options as I've just got a job on a cruise ship starting in September, I'm just moving back to my Dad's but she has had the run of my kitchen all day and night, struggling to get a picture attached...
