I tried breeding my dwarf hotot female. She only bred once we tried again and she wouldn't but the first time they went until the buck passed out.
She is getting a little heavier/fatter and she has made a hole with the straw in her nest box but hasn't pulled any fur. It's around the 28th day now. But I was wondering does this sound like a pregnancy to anyone or not? ****Karen Sez****
It's hard to diagnose a pregnancy from way over here, but yeah! Sounds probable, very probable. Some does don't pull fur till after the babies are born, while others pack the box with fur ahead of time till they're practically nekkid. So, you can't wholly depend on fur or no fur to predict pregnancy.
A few more days of patience, and you'll know for sure if there are babies, or just a false pregnancy.
I'll tell you this....in all the years, I've never seen a passed-out-buck....! Does it need a diet??
