So why winter Breed?
Breeding in the winter is easier on the does than breeding in the summer. Rabbits handle cold far better than they do heat. I've lost does pregnant in the summer heat and I'd really not experience that again.
Do I lose babies?
Do I like losing babies?
But the pros out-weigh the cons for me.
Stronger kits, immense pride in the does who do everything right, and the joy of babies to brighten the dreary winter days. :) It's worth it in the long run. :)
