    so, I brought the buck into the does pen to see if any of them had come into heat. ruby and rose were crazy over the buck- rubbing and doing that odd position trying to pee on their face :roll: buck wasnt interested. no flagging, no discharge just rubbing all over him nibbling on his face- which he got annoyed with fairly quickly.

    should I consider them pregnant? They were with the buck during their last cycle, and am thinking this is just a 'fake' heat??

    well... if there is nothing wrong with the buck....and he has no interest.....in which... if the does are in season ...believe me ....he would definitly respond ....what day of heat cyle... after last breeding are you testing on?
    If your buck was interested before ....when he first bred them ....he should respond in the same manner.....this time.... :wink: :greengrin:

    I have a doe... that likes to rub on the buck as well .....but she is definilty out of season...and possibly preggo.... :wink: :greengrin:

    well last time he was in with them, I dont think he even ate, he acted like a buck! I'm thinking that the girls just think theyre in heat, but are pregnant because I dont see any flagging or discharge etc. last cycle they all had heavy white discharge and were yelling, mounting etc. and now there is none.

    i'm calling this case closed. lol :wink:
