What age to butcher rabbits?

You can butcher them as soon as they are the size you want. I have one friend that butchers at about 5 wks and another that waits until about 12 weeks.
And you can keep the buns your raising with their momma for the full 8 weeks (preferably with a larger cage) while they wean and then it's off to freezer camp.

I have two current litters. #1 is 12 days old and has 8 kits. #2 is 2 days old and has 9 kits.
