    Mum possibly pregnant ! Help

    So when we found out mum was pregnant with first litter. Mum and dad were separated instantly. A week later she had the litter. The babies are now 10 weeks old.

    Doe running away from babies

    That’s all helpful, thank you. How did you figure out what there weight should be ? I have one a bit lighter than the others. I gave it a little top up of milk via a syringe and it took it.

    Doe running away from babies

    So I put a wooden box in the pen for mum, so she could get up and away from them, as I could see they were annoying her. She also gets outside time completely away from them. Which she likes. But now they appeared to have re-nested inside the hut. But haven’t gone in there original nest at all...

    Doe running away from babies

    Evening, Just me again. So we lost 3 babies around the week mark, to severe injuries caused by mum. We found putting mum out for the day and putting her back with kits overnight has worked. No more injured. Mum appears happier and babies are just over 2 weeks and running round like mad. I have...

    Help - Babies badly injured **

    Update : They are now 8 days old! Appear to be doing well. Definitely some larger ones that I think will be more like dad (who is giant) as they have bigger feet and some smaller ones like mum.

    Help - Babies badly injured **

    That is what we are going to stick to do doing. Mum tucked them all in last night so I haven’t touched them or moved them. Just wait for mum to come in later and do her thing. Then just keep letting her out for the day ☺️

    Help - Babies badly injured **

    We were going to try build a more secure nest that is taller, so they fall off into nest as mum jumps out. I really don’t think mum is doing it intentionally, I think they are falling out and she is doing what she thinks best. I am trying to figure out at what point is enough. Do we just put...
