I have a pregnant NZW doe, first litter, she is already about a year old- her first litter because we could not find an unrelated buck until recently. Anyway, she is due in a few days so I put a nest box in her cage yesterday. I put a couple of inches of wood chips in the bottom of the nest box, then threw a bunch of hay into the cage. This is how I have always done the nest boxes- that way I can tell when they start moving the hay to make the nests. Well, this doe moved some of the hay into the nest box, and either ate the rest of it, or what she did not eat fell through the floor of the cage. When I checked her today I could see that she had pulled a couple of clumps of fur which were laying on top of the hay in the nest box. I added another bunch of hay to the cage, and when I went back an hour later she had moved the hay into the nest box, or eaten it, and there was very little hay left in the cage. But I also noticed that there were a lot of little tufts of hair laying all around the cage where the hay had been- she pulled fur but did not put it in the nest box. I gave her some more hay, and will check her again later, but wonder if I should be concerned? I've never had a doe that pulled fur and left it outside the nest box, so I am not sure what to expect from her now. Of course, after weeks of beautiful weather it turned really cold and windy last night, and will be in the 20's tonight. I will probably dig into my stash of fur (from brushing) and dryer lint and add some of that material to the nest box tonight if she doesn't fix it up herself. Unless, anyone else has any suggestions? Thanks, and wish us luck.
