I tried to breed my two harlequins yesterday and the female apparently didn't want to because she bit the male in the nuts. Ouch! I took her out and checked for injuries on the guy, but from what I can tell, he seems fine. I tried holding her while the guy...you know, but she won't stick her butt up. What else can I do? She might be pregnant, but I won't be able to tell for a while. Should I just try her again and stick her butt up for her?

If she *might* be pregnant then wait until you know she isn't pregnant. Poor guy got bit! a doe can do even worse like rip him to shreds and he will never breed.

It is only 31 days from the time you think she was bread so be patient. Get a nesting box ready just in case.

Okay, sounds good. When I breed her next I'll make sure to hold her. No more biting for that girl!

There is a good article in the current edition(sept/oct) of country side magazine called the art of palpataion. Check to see yourself if she's pregnant. :D
