These are not 'meat' breed rabbits, but rabbits that were bred for meat. A cross between 2 moderate to large breeds (adult does are around 8-9 lbs, adult buck is I think around 7 lbs). I was expecting to butcher all young bucks between 3-4 months of age. They are growing much better/faster than I had anticipated though. Could they be processed at a younger age? Approximately what weight is good to expect for a standard fryer?
