I have a 1 1/2 holland lop can I still breed her? she has never been bred before.
I won't breed any of my does, if it's their first litter after 2 yrs. I've found that a few breeders I've met at various shows, tend to agree.
You could probably google that and find some information on the breeding age. You could also visit the Rabbit Talk in Ohio website. I think it's www.rto.org (not 100%) sure. Anyway you don't have to be from Ohio to join. It's a great site full of a boatload of information and many breeders who are willing to answer your questions.
I personally wouldn't recommend it. Especially with the smaller breeds, you generally want to breed them for the first time before they're a year old. Some of the largest breeds that take longer to mature can wait a little longer, but older rabbits, especially first timers, usually have a harder time getting pregnant and giving birth.
Ok I was just wondering.
People claim that unless you breed a doe prior to one year of age, the pelvis will fuse and she will not be able to concieve or deliver....
