Happy New Year everyone! This board has been too quiet lately. So maybe we can get a discussion going. I was wondering if any of you in the northern climes breed during the winter and if so, what additional measures need to be taken? I live in North West Montana and the temps are in the teens during the day and single digits at night (sometimes â digits) and we are getting maybe 8 hours of daylight. My barn is just an enclosed carport with no heat. I have two litters in the nest box now that are about 2 weeks old. They are doing fine. I seem to have this part down once the kits are born. I am wondering about the breeding part now. I just bred 2 does today, one VERY willing doe and one not willing doe (although he did get her once). These does are sisters (same litter so you know for age reference, both virgin) and before I put them with the buck I checked the vulva and both were dark pink (red). I have seen posts where people are leaving lights on for 16 hours a day or bringing the does in the house for a couple days, etc. Based on what I saw today that doesnât make a difference. What is your opinion? Do you do anything special? Thank you.
