    Not necessarily. When is she due? Some of them will make a next any ole' time if you give them a nest box. Some will make it shortly before they have kits. We generally put ours in 2 days before they're due to have the kits. I count 31 days from the day we breed them and put the nest box in on day 29.

    Our doe had her babies last week and this is how she did it. She started pulling fur and making a nest on Friday afternoon. We figured she'd have her kits that night. The next morning we caught her in the middle of kindling. She didn't enjoy that suprise, so we now have 2 remaining alive out of 9. But it was her first litter, so I call it a success. Good luck!
