Expected Rabbit Production
A properly managed rabbit colony should consistently provide many mature rabbits every month. Each doe in your colony should produce between 6-10 kits every 31 days. Therefore, a colony of 10 does should produce 60-100 babies each month. These numbers may vary according to your colonies’ health and feeding capabilities.
A rabbit will be considered fully grown at 12 weeks of age and should weigh 3-5 pounds. When butchered it should produce 2-3 pounds of high protein meat. So, if you consider 60-100 rabbits weighing 2-3 pounds butchered, you will get between 120-300 pounds of meat every month.
