I have been waiting for my meat hybrid project to yield such results and had the name in the back of my mind for such a rabbit. Yahtzee, our black doe born out of Tribble by Reishi, was from a litter of 12. She was 5 lbs 3 oz at 8 weeks and her brother (Fanter as we called him) was 5lbs exactly. We sold him to some people who needed a good herd sire and I think he will be just that. Before we sold him we did get a litter out of him with Ophelia. While it was only 6 kits they are reaching their marks on weight with great success. Most of them were 2 lbs 3oz at 3 weeks. The other litters born at the same time are running a 1lb 14 oz or so. Only time will tell but Yahtzees litter had 11 kits and those are the ones that are around 1lb 14 oz. They are holding their own.
Plus this winning rabbit is so sweet and always insists on getting pet when I reach to check her kits. What a love and an all around success story for our little farm. It really is the small stuff that can make your day.
