    Yesterday, we went and bought four NZ/California Crosses. It was said to be that they were 8-10 weeks but the smallest we have now is able to fit in one of our hands and we’re not sure if that’s her current age frame or not. We’ve never dealt with this breed before and I wanted to ask more knowledgeable sources before we took her somewhere else to be checked up on to make sure she’s okay with being on the same diet the other rabbits are on. She’s been acting fine and doing everything they’re doing but her size still worries me.

    At 8-10weeks they should be at least 3lbs if they are bred for meat. Cals and New Zealand’s are some of the fastest growing rabbits but that also depends on the line that the breeder used. Breeders use a fast growing line because people show a meat pen at 70days old and the babies should already be 5lb
