My doe had her babies outside the nest box!
My doe had two kits yesterday tea time but outside the nest box so I have put them in the nest box and left the box where she gave birth to them. Have I made a wrong move will she still feed them? She is a first time mum and I'm worried she will now neglect them. It's just as there are only two kits I didn't want them getting separated and getting cold. Could you please give me some advice.
Stacey, you did just what we would have done, and for all the same reasons. By now you should know if the doe is feeding them -- by nice round tummies.
With first-time moms, more than likely all will go well, but there's always a tiny concern, even if she places her kits in the nest box.
Hopefully all goes well for you!
God bless you,
