    How soon can a doe be rebred after having kids?
    I have a doe who I just thought was fat, but she is baggng up and I can feel kids moving very strongly. She had twins on March 8th. I figure she is due in the next cople days. That means she was rebred around June 1st. Thats only 13 weeks after giving birth. Is this common? Or do I have a money maker here? She never lost condition, even when my other gots were suffering from worms and whatever else, this doe always looked like she was part cow. She is a boer cross.

    Does *can* be bred back the same week they have kids if they come in heat and are running with a buck. Its NOT reccomended though. 13 weeks is not uncommon and if she is in good condition,,,,,good for her!

    This doe is exceptional. Not only did she rebreed quickly, but she has gained weight over the summer while feeding her kid. She only raised one, but she is the size of our yearlings.
