6 month old Lamb

Question: What’s the deal with 6-month lamb? Do they have to be the same size as 1-year-old sheep to be valid for Qurbani, or them losing baby teeth is sufficient? بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


If the 6-month old lamb is so big in size that if it were to mix with the 1-year old lambs the onlooker from afar would be unable to distinguish between them, i.e. the 6-month old lamb blends in with 1-year old lambs, then it would be permissible to slaughter such a lamb for Qurbani. Regarding the 6- month old lamb, its size, as explained earlier, is taken into consideration for the validity of Qurbani, hence losing the baby teeth is not sufficient.
