they should be somehwhere between 6 months (or when the rabbit stops growing), but if you want to breed the rabbit fro meat and fur you can breed them earlier. Breeding to early will stunt growth.

What age can you put a male and female rabbit together?

Once the rabbits are spayed and neutered, they can be introduced and you can try to bond them; before that time, they must be kept apart or else they will mate. Rabbits mature as early as 3-4 months for small breeds, 4-6 months for large breeds, and some types are able to breed as early as 12 weeks -- so, once they've been weaned from the mother, does and bucks should be separated. Otherwise, if you are in fact trying to breed your rabbits, it's best to wait until they are at least six months old to make sure they are sexually mature enough to breed successfully and safely. Before breeding your rabbits, consider all the bunnies waiting in shelters to be adopted -- does the world really need more rabbits?

What age can rabbits breed?

Rabbits can breed as early as just a few months of age. 3 for males and 4-5 months for females. Although if you are breeding them intentionally you should wait until the female is at least one year of age. Rabbits can breed as young as 12 weeks however this is really not good for them. If you absolutely have to breed your rabbit it is best to wait until they have reached at least 1 year old first for females. Males become sexually mature much sooner and are able to breed at 12 weeks with no problems. Waiting to breed your does until they are a year old means you are risking them becoming too fat to conceive, storing fat around the fallopian tubes. Breeding your bucks at 12 weeks will stunt their growth. You should wait until your rabbits are at least 6 months old or have reached mature weight for their breed.
