What is the range of birth weight of your kids for the following breeds?

Nigerian Dwarfs
Mini Nubians

Our one Nubian gave birth to two full-bred Nubian bucklings around 10-11 lbs. Our other Nubian gave birth to three full-bred Nubian kids (two females, one male) between 6-7 lbs.

Our third Nubian doe gave birth to a Mini Nubian (50/50). This doe was bred to a full-bred Nigerian Dwarf. I was surprised how big her Mini Nubian doeling was at birth. It was 7 lbs. Is this an average or above average size for a Mini Nubian at birth? Also, this dam is the daughter to the doe who had given birth to the bucklings that were 10-11 lbs.
