Litter AK Update: Sexing, 3 Week Weighing

This litter of four is now three weeks old. All of these kits are doing well. We made our first attempt at sexing this litter today and the preliminary results indicate that we have 1 buck and 3 does.

At three weeks of age, we like to see our rabbits around 0.75 pounds in order to hit the 4 week minimum target weight of 1.00 pound. The buck’s weight was: 0.59. The does’ weights were: 0.56, 0.53, 0.53.

The nest box was removed today and the creep feeder has been introduced. We are hoping the availability of the creep feeder in addition to the continued nursing will help the rabbits catch up to the normal growth curve.

There is still a waiting list of buyers so as soon as these kits were sexed they were reserved for the next buyers on the list. As such, all the kits from this litter are spoken for.
