Right now my White one is about 6-7 months old in the pic of me holding her. The silver one is 1 yr old in the pic, and the blue female is about 3 years old in the pic, these are pics I recently took :)

how much do they weigh?

 

and I'm not trying to be offensive, since it appears you are raising them to be pets. but on average how much feed do they eat, to get to a decent butchering size?

uhhh I have not weighed them yet, I have sold meat rabbits as the Californian and the New Zealand in the past. Im in the process of getting a scale for my rabbits. I give each a cup in a half to to cups a day. im not sure on the butchering size because they actually do not make good meat rabbits because they grow very slowly, there bones grow faster then the weight they put on  so when u weigh them it is mostly bone :P
