Flemish Giants

We are not new to raising bunnies but newly to raising flemish giants! We just rescued to flemish giants from a family that was not taking well care of them They are already doing much better they were so scared that they wouldt move. Now when we bring them in the house they jump all over. One of them is losing hair and looks as if they have very very dry skin. Does anyone know what you can do for this? They are just barely a year old.
Also any name ideas? I want to give them cute names and Im a little picky with the animals i pick myself so i want the name to fit but i cant come up with anything :S

Just a curious question why breed them ? you dont know there background where there orginally from, there already terrified as you said they were rescues from a family that couldnt take care of them,,,, you dont know there genetic background, where they petshop rabbits before that or where they from a breeder where the parents healthy ect ect, there is also the fact that soooo many rabbits need good homes right now. and it is much healther for them to be spayed as it can prevent cancers and other sicknesses.

I agree with nibbler. Though i have been tempted SOOOO many times to breed my Flemish, it's just not in anyones best interest.

1. Most people do not have a clue on how to raise larger rabbits like this. Plan to adopt your baby Flemish rabbits to someone who will enjoy the sight of this large bun for a week or two, then plop it right into a small cage purchased for smaller sized rabbits from petsmart or something.
2. You do not know the history....this is concern #1....so many kinds of things could be genetically wrong. Inbred, cancer, diseases, etc
3. These poor babies are already stressed and now the female will be going through hormonal changes with a pregnancy, expect some babies to die if not still born-- as the mother will not be in her right mind to care properly for her babies.

Goodluck.
