At birth the fawn weighs 6 to 9 kg depending on the origin and the living conditions. On average, the males weigh 500g more than the females.
During the first months of life, growth is rapid. Fawns take 300 to 400g per day and reach 45 to 60 kg at 6 months. The growth lasts up to 3-4 years in the doe, reaching 160 to 230 kg.
