To vary the number of pups each pairing can have and make it more natural in the next spring season onward...

lone wolves have a 90-95% chance of having just one pup, and a 5-10% chance of having two

subordinates in a pack have a 70% chance of having one pup, but a 30% chance of having two

leading wolf plus subordinate has a 50% chance of having two pups, but a 25% chance of having one and a 25% chance of having three

leading pair has a 60% chance of three pups, a 20% chance of two, and a 20% chance of four.

I think this would create a more fun, dynamic, and much more realistic way of seeing how many puppies could be born each year. Of course, the numbers and percentages are completely free to change. It sounds like much more work than it actually is, because you would just have to take each pair and run them through a customized random generator with numbers and percentages set.

It could even be as simple as running a number selector 1-100, and (for example), if the pair are both lead wolves, one of the first 60 numbers would be three pups, the second 20 numbers would be 2 pups, and the last 20 could be four pups. So, if you got the number 68, you would have two pups. 32, you would have three. 97, you would have four, and so on and so forth.

But anyway, the set numbers of litters on here... it doesn’t bother me, per say, but I do think that it could be made much more realistic and interesting!

Any thoughts?
