    How old do bucklings typically start acting "bucky"??

    My little Turner turned 2 weeks today and the last couple days (ok - ever since he met Flopsy) he has been a little ball of buck hormones!!! LOL! I can't keep him off of poor flopsy and she is only a week old!

    Just thought that I would ask!

    Oh that's completely normal. My little bucks will start that up at about a week or two old. It's really quite funny! Poor little Flopsy though...just doesn't know what to think of it. BTW...They both are looking really good!

    I think that Turner is NOT going anywhere. He is a doll and I really do like him. He is doing so well with letting me minipulate his legs when he is standing and what not. I am really hoping that he will be "show" quality for me!

    Flopsy, well that is Norm's girl - one of the babies finally caught his eye! LOL!

    My little guys start that at a week or so old...sometimes as soon as they have their bellies full...it is comical though!

    Hahaha I've had bucklings born making bucky noises less than a couple hours old. Going through the motions and blubbering at just a week or more. They are funny for sure!

    He is adorable.
    I have had one that was really aggressive at two weeks and some that were totally unconcerned at 4 months. They vary a lot.

    They do vary, but I've found the minis tend to do it early! When my youngest buck, Mighty, was born, he was blubbering and "flirting" with my hand while I waited for his twin to be born, so I'd say anywhere from birth on!
