Yes I'm thinking so too and my older doe butts them out o the way all the time just rams into their stomaches when I feed them could she be the cause of the miscarriage ? I hate to put her buy herself but don't want her hurting the younger ones

If she rams hard on the right side it could very well be her fault.
My queen did that to an FF repeatedly up against the side of a building. Sure enough, she aborted.
Since old Queenie hasn't settled for a few years she stays with the buck when he's not working.
If your Queen has a buddy or two maybe that could be a solution?

90% of all our miscarriages are from a doe either getting slammed or an intense battle that went on for a long time. Id either make more feeders and spread them out or as many do, tie up the mean one while feeding.

Yep, all my aborts were from others slamming into them too. I've only had 2 aborts thankfully. But a little 105lb alpine doe I had caused a 250lb boer doe to abort by relentlessly slamming into her.

I would say yours were about 2 months, 2 1/2 months along.
