I breed every 60 days. I wean at 30 days. You need good stock to do this with the smaller breeds though. I do this with mini rex, netherlands, hollands(larger hollands), dutch, polish, lionheads, florida whites and a few jersey woolys.
We breed them about every 60 days or when the babies hit 8-10 weeks. It all depends on the does condition. We have one mini rex doe that is nursing 8 right now. SHe has lost alot of condition this time with so many draining her so we will wait til winter to breed her again.
