My three does are all related to each other. The senior ones are sisters and the junior one, now raising her first litter, is the daughter of one of them. The senior buck I have been using with the two seniors is unrelated to them, but is the sire of the junior doe and also of the junior buck. The juniors are sister and brother, but from different litters. The junior buck was so promising that I bred him back to his dam and the resulting litter, born in late July, was excellent. It included the two Angora-furred babies who are worth saving because of their fur and also because they are growing much more quickly than any of their lettermates. This encouraged me to try him with his sister and the litter, one week old, looks good so far. With such a small rabbitry I really do not need two bucks. I'd like to cull the original buck. He is on the small side and although he is chunky he is just not as good as his son. In fact the only thing gives him an edge is that he is unrelated to the two original does. My rabbits are all mutts. Very few of the youngsters are kept; most are slaughtered for meat as soon as they are ready. But I wonder how long I can safely continue inbreeding before I am likely to run into problems. I guess I am looking for feedback from those of you who have been in the "rabbit habit" for long enough to have a better overall view than I can hope to have with only fifteen months of experience.
