    If you have a good relationship with the Doe, You can touch and hold anytime..10 days for the eyes to open,and 14 or 15 days they will start to get out of the box..To tell Doe or Buck will take awhile..Some say you can tell in about a month..I say 8 to 10 weeks before I would bet money on the out come..LOL

    I give a couple of hairball cat food kibbles and that stopped my does from eating the kits. I think it has something to do with protien. Even does that ate them in the past stopped after I started the kibble. I would start a couple of days before they are due and continue a couple after. They gobble them up. My orginal doe is 11 years old and still looking great so it didn't effect her health.
