Aggressive doe won't have babies

I have a doe that is about 2 years old and boys that are around 6 months old. I tried letting them breed all the time and she has not yet had babies. I tried breeding her to three different bunnies. I don't take the boy to the girl, I take them both to a different area. She also attacks them when I let them see each other and nips at them if they get near her. Why won't she have babies?

Things might go better if you take the doe to the buck's cage, and here's why. In his own cage, the buck is confident enough to be assertive with the doe. And because the doe can smell the buck everywhere, she'll be on much better behavior when she is in the buck's 'territory.'

Once the days start getting longer, this might also improve the doe's willingness to breed.

About the doe's age, two years old is not a spring chicken, but it's still definitely young enough for reproduction. But, is she healthy? Does she have any latent infections? If nothing else works, it could be there's an underlying health problem.

Hope you can make it work!
