How old for Holland Lops for their first breeding

Post Number:#1  Unread postby ozemba » Sat Feb 24, 2018 9:14 pm


I'm trying to decide if I should breed a young doe I kept back before we do our baby break for summer. She was born mid-November, she'll be 20 weeks old when I'm planning on breeding my older does for the last time this spring.

I know that Hollands mature around 4-5 months typically. I would definitely not want her bred alone since it would be her first litter. And after that I probably won't breed again until October because my boys will be heat sterile.

Anyway, thoughts? Advice? Should I just wait or go ahead and breed her, if it doesn't take it doesn't take?
