    Well, my kits are 2 1/2 weeks old and growing fast. After all the research I've done it shocked me how fast they grow. You cant comprehend it until you have some before your eyes.
    I'm considering keeping one of the doe's from this litter as future breeding stock. What do you personally look for in future breeders? These NZs are used mainly for meat and I have a few people interested in getting some in future litters to start their own "herds". What would you look for? And does the fastest growing kit play any part in your pick? Im definitely not choosing one yet as I want to see how they look at 10 or 12 weeks but just trying to plan ahead. Thanks!
