I'm new here so maybe this question has been asked/answered but here it is. I have this doe who won't let the buck breed her, he trys but she just hangs tight so to speak. I've read to put your hand under the does belly and lift her up somewhat, I've tried that but that doesn't seem to help either.

Here's another question, when a buck breeds a doe, after he gets his thing done does he always fall off and look dead for a few seconds in order for the doe to acutally be bred?

Thanks for the help.

I am still new to the rabbit breeding but that has been my experience with the rabbits, my buck usually squeals and then falls over for a few seconds and then gets right back up, if he doesnt do that then I know he hasnt done the full deed so to speak
