Hi i have a flemish giant doe who gave birth to a beautiful litter. I was wondering until what age they will breastfeed from their mother, and if i should seperate them from her?

There is nothing set in stone regarding weaning. Some leave the kits in with the doe till they are 8 weeks or more. Others who follow an intensive breed abck schedule will rebreed the doe at 11 or 14 days after kindle and wean at 4 weeks.

I wean mine when they have been eating hay and pellets and drinking water for about a week. That's usually at 4-5 weeks.
