    I have a two year old New Zealand doe that has just kindled her fourth litter. For the fourth consecutive time, she had nine kits. I'm thinking that maybe I should change her name to something related to that number. The curiosity is building in the litter size that I can expect to be produced by one of her previous does that I'm keeping for future breeding.

    Has anybody experienced that kind of consistency in kit production?

    Rabbits, not so far. (I certainly would like 8 to 9 every kindle!)

    Cats, yes. We had one that had her spring litter of three kittens within two days of Memorial Day every year.
