    Oh yeah... they are VERY fertile little things! My little 3 weeks old boys are SO BUCKY!! Even buckier than the bucks in the buck pen!! WOW!
    Technically they can breed as early as 3 months!! not that I would EVER recommend that!
    Just make sure it's not diahhrea...that would be a no-no and something to worry about & fix asap.
    Have fun with her!! They are SO LOVEALBE!!!

    With the nigerians, it is recommended to separate those bucklings at 8 weeks of age because it's possible for them to breed. It is funny to see those day old bucklings trying to mount eachother! There is no mistaking those boys lol!

    Yep, sounds like she just came out of heat. Not uncommon for them to show heat signs that young. ;)

    I agree, sounds like your baby is growing up! Watch for heat signs in 3 weeks, this will give you an idea as to when to expect her regular heat cycle, some doelings can be off a few days for the first few til they regulate. My little pygmy Heidi was 3 months old when she had her first...awful pitiful sounding too cause she seemed really confused as to why she was behaving the way she was.
