Default Time to wean buckling.

I have one buckling who just turned 2 months old and another that is about 7 weeks old. They are both showing A LOT of interest with their sister doelings and the rest of the doelings. I am wondering if it is time for me to wean them and remove them as to avoid any unwanted inbred pregnancies?

What breeds? Are they able to extend their penis?

If they haven't extended, you are ok.

Yes. If they are bringing out their you know what, it is time to remove them.
If they are only talking and mounting without bringing it out, practicing, then you are OK for now. i wean mine at 2.5 to 3 months old.
But watch for extending, if you feel they are getting to fresh, do it a bit sooner if I feel you should.

Gotcha. When exactly do the doelings reach sexual maturity ? Because those are really the only ones I'm concerned of right now. I don't think they could reach the does.
