    We had our Boer doe at the breeder for about 12 days. The breeder saw the buck try to mount her a couple times, and he said that she was in heat at least a couple days during her stay. The day after we brought her home, there was a white mucous discharge occuring. Did that mean she went in heat again, or something else? I plan on breeding again in a couple weeks , but I'm wondering if there is any chance that she's pregnant with the discharge occuring? I didn't want to leave her there too long, as I had a wether back at our place going nuts while alone. Since we thought she was bred is why we took her home for a stay.

    Please advise. Thanks

    I was actually just getting on here to ask the same question about a doe of mine. She was in heat for the last two days and today she has a white mucus-y discharge and is a bit pink and swollen, and seems a little uncomfortable in that area (she doesn't like me touching her anywhere near her rear end today, and normally she doesn't care). Good to know it's normal! This is my first breeding season, so I'm having to learn as I go.

    a white discharge after breeding isnt abnormal as the doe will secrete any "extra" from breeding

    it can also be as Pam said and be normal for the end of their heat cycle.
