~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Juniors are 6 months of age or younger. Babies (Kits) are born after 30 days gestation period with eyes closed and no fur. They are completely helpless and feed only once a day for around 5 minutes. The mother ignores them in between feedings as it is her nature not to bring attention to the nest. They open their eyes at around 2 weeks and leave the nest at about 3 weeks. They are weaned around 7 to 10 weeks of age. Netherland Dwarfs are particularly hard to raise as they carry a dwarf gene. If a baby is born that has inherited the gene from BOTH parents, it is lethal. This, on top of the fact that a dwarf typically has a small litter of 2 or 3, makes breeding challenging at best.
