1.5lbs of fat

Post Number:#1  Unread postby KimitsuKouseki » Fri Jun 09, 2017 8:59 am


So last week I culled Onyx, that doe that kills her kits :evil: and Datenshi a super nice buck that didn't have a place in my breeding program anymore :cry_baby:

Before processing, Onyx weighted 5.25lbs and Datenshi 3.5lbs

Since I got Onyx I always felt she was fat from the inside. I know her previous owner neglected her and had stopped breeding her a while and I was unsure how old she was. I was going to breed her often to make her lose weight, but then she killed her kits and I decided not to keep her..... So when I processed her I expected a lot of fat but by god not that much. There was more fat then organs!

After processing Datenshi weighted 2.25lbs and Onyx was the same at 2.25lbs... SO, do the math, if Datenshi lost 1.25lbs from being processed and you assume it shouldve been the same for Onyx, her carcass should've been around 4lbs insted. This means I removed 1.75lbs of extra internal fat!!!!
