Welcome to the official home page of the National Federation of Flemish Giant Rabbit Breeders, one of the oldest Breed clubs in the US.   The purpose of the NFFGRB has always been to promote and improve the Flemish Giant breed.  The club does this using this website, quarterly newsletters, a wonderful guidebook, and by encouraging the exhibition of Flemish Giants at ARBA Rabbit Shows through the sweepstakes program.


Whether you are new to this wonderful breed or a long time enthusiast, please spend a few minutes looking around to learn more about these remarkable animals.


Note to all who visit the NFFGRB web site:

The National Federation of Flemish Giant Rabbit Breeders and its Executive Board only recognize the Seven Varieties (colors) of Flemish Giants presently approved and listed in the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) Standard of Perfection.  Those Colors are:


BLACK, BLUE, FAWN, LIGHT GRAY, SANDY, STEEL GRAY, WHITE


NO OTHER COLORS (VARIETIES) SHOULD BE REFERRED TO AS FLEMISH GIANTS UNLESS THE BREEDER HAS OBTAINED A C.O.D. (Certificate of Development) FROM THE ARBA AND IS FOLLOWING PROPER PROCEDURES TO GET ANOTHER VARIETY ACCEPTED. PRESENTLY, VARIETIES THAT ARE NOT ACCEPTED BY OUR STANDARD WOULD BE  DISQUALIFIED ON THE SHOW TABLE BY ARBA JUDGES, AND BY NOT MEETING THE DEFINITION SET FORTH IN THE BREED STANDARD, WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED FLEMISH GIANTS. (PLEASE REFER TO THE ARBA STANDARD OF PERFECTION FOR FLEMISH GIANTS)
