Hey there

basically as title suggests - I want to breed my first litter of mini lops before my doe is 7 months old as I read the success rates and stress on the mother is better with a younger doe.

but my buck will only be around 4 months old when my doe reaches that age.

so do you think a 4 month old buck will be ready at that age? I’m thinking of table breeding possibly to help him along a bit. Thoughts?

Too young. He might be willing to be breed but at that age there isn't high fertility as there isnt much sperm development yet, so you'd risk missing a breeding or having a small litter.
