I keep going back and forth on them (most recently, just "no, not bred"). Doe 1 could be due any day up til November 8 and Doe 2 up til December 15. I'm not really hopeful on either since there's still no udders on either of them. Spring is going to be a long wait. Sigh. :(

Doe 1






Doe 2

I would say no, also. But there is always a possibility I could be wrong!

Hmm, the way you tell is if the vulva points down, she is bred. If it points up, she isn't. Generally works that way, at least. Can't tell from the picture.

One from the side would really help.. But I vote yes as well.. Make sure she isn't too thin.. 9 months is kinda young to get bred.

Lots of people breed at 7-9 months old; I have heard they do just fine, and can actually have a harder time if you wait till they are over a year or more.:)
Lacie (Little-Bits-and-Pieces) does that, you can ask her about it. ;)
I intend to breed one of our doelings when she's 8-9 months old- she's a very healthy weight for h age, so I think she'll do great. :)

I was wondering if being that young would hurt her or not.....and she is fed well, but do you recommend any supplement's or extras she should have? She is Nigerian dwarf :)
