Thanks guys, I'll definitely post pics of her first skein of yarn for you six gun. It will be interesting to see what colors I get with my herd this time around. My old buck is a blue based fawn carrying chocolate and chin and my black doe likely carries sable, the new buck is supposed to have sable and seal and the little doe comes from a whole line of reds. It's going to be fun to see who carries exactly what and all the crazy recessives that pop up. Good timing too, I can write down genotypes for all in my herd but two rabbits. Time for new puzzles!

So how long will it be to get usable wool off the little ones?

The baby coat is usually to fine to spin, so in the good lines the junior coat that sheds out around 6 months is really the first usable fiber in my opinion. The lines I was working with a couple years ago had super soft coats in the adults (they were bred to be closer to English, so less guard hair but with clean heads, feet, etc) so even the junior coat had to be scrapped of those. The only rabbit I have left from them is the buck in my avatar, so hopefully the new does can balance out his coat in the next gen.
