    I purchased a pair of Mini Lops in October. The previous owner said that they were seven months old (or, rather, born in February.) I've been procrastinating. I meant to breed the doe in December, so that the bunnies would be ready for Easter, but now I'm a tad too late.

    Nevertheless, I'm going to breed them today -- now or never. But I'm worried. Is the doe, at around 10 months, too old to breed? (She's never been bred before.)
