How heavy are your lambs, i thought they need 6 to 8 months (my plan is to wait 9and butcher them at the end of the dry, but might be different in different breeds)?

Im not sure on the weight but they are bigger than their mums already i would guess somewhere around the 25-30kg. Ill let you know when i hang them. Im sure i have some scales somewhere. The 2 that im doing this time are both boys so that might have an influence? I have been told that the Dorpers will get too fatty if you let them get much over 6 months. I dont know if thats right or not but they seem to be big enough already so im going to have a go.

Well I have slaughtered up one of my lambs and will do the butchering today. It weighed 23Kg after it was skinned and hanging. I'm not sure what sort of weight is normal but I would not want to do one that weighed much more it was pretty hard work while it was still whole. I tried to weigh it whole but my scales only go up to 25Kg. How long do you normally hang a lamb for after slaughter? I'm looking at 2 days this time but will see how it goes.
