So I put my doe in with my buck on August 9 when she was in a standing heat. He bred her right away as far as I could see becuz stuff came out of her back end and he also did a good hunch. I was just wondering about something tho.. like I’ve heard of a lot of people leaving their doe in with the buck a few days after they are bred.. so should I have left her in there? Cuz I just took her out a few minutes after she was bred just to see if he would try to mount her again but didn’t.. it doesn’t seem that she has come into heat again so I trust she got bred.. I just had looked it up for how long a doe stays in heat and this is what it said: typically when a doe is in heat the buck will remain with her 48-72 hrs until she is no longer receptive to breeding. During this time he will keep her separated from other females and males to give home a better chance of producing offspring)
I usually will leave them together for several hours, but if it's been more than 21 days and you haven't seen her in heat again, she is most likely bred. You can always do a blood test after 30 days to be sure!
We let them mount them 2-3 times. Or rather 2-3 times of them getting the doe. Where the bucks throw the head back and the doe hunches. It takes the bucks a little bit to get ready for another go after they make contact.
We have had it where there was only one good contact made and the doe was bred and kidded. Really all you need is once.
