    I lion head rabbits they are not to big and I also have 1 Californian, she is twice the size of my lion head buck, I am going to try an mate them I should get mid size babies. a few years back I had a Flemish Giant and a reg old mutt buck rabbit who was only half her size and I got babies that some were as big as mom, some as small as dad and some in the middle
    hope this helps

    Which rabbit is the doe? Breeding a bigger buck to a smaller doe you are taking a chance. 1 that she could have babied to big to deliver and all would die and she could get sick. Of course everything could be ok too. If the doe is the bigger one than there shouldn't be much of a problem.
