Rabbit Kill Size

I keep looking at my young NZW's next to their mum and thinking... they're not big enough yet. Then I noticed them next to a wild rabbit who visited and thought, they're huge!!

What LIVE weight do you kill at? And do you hang or just skin and butcher immediately?

The last one i did was a bit stringy but I over cooked it so not putting blame on anyone yet....
Northern Lass

Anything over 4lbs liveweight for me, depending on how pushed I am for space in the shed!
