Welp I guess her litters will be sold for pets then and my 8.5 lb doe will make our meat litters. Haha.
Had one minirex doe (litter of 8 kits with my small dwarf buck), kept one doe, put rest in the freezer including the doe. Handling wise and hutch wise she was a bit to big for my preferences. Dwarf, 1600-1800 grams adult about, so big/too big for the breed standard, is wat i breed for meat here and that suits me fine. But single person household. This size fits my hutches, hands, cookpot and freezer well and i still want to do this at 80+. I found dispatching the minidoe on the limit for easy dispatch with broomstick method. Had no problems as such, but prefer slightly smaller animals if it is adults. Bodyshape is more important than size to be suitable for meat and i find that with power reliability possibly becoming an issue on top of the mess that increases exponentially with more kits, smaller does and smaller litters work better for me. Rather have 4 twice a year per doe and 8 does, than say 3 does with 12 2-3 times a year. Both too have enough genetic spread and spread litters to just go direct from hutch to pot if needed rather than have continueous overflowing freezer, and the one i have is plenty, no room for extra apart from cost of buying and use these days. But i started out on the premis that if quail are big enough to eat, then so are bantam chickens and dwarf rabbits and not a fan of the bigger is better idea.
