    I had a NZ doe that was 34 days due so I put her in with the buck, he mounted and fell off 2 times. She was very willing if you get what I mean. So I assumed she was not pregnant, well she had 10 kits that night, now she is 2 weeks out and I tried to breed her and she chased one buck around and mounted him, he did not want to mate. I put her with another buck and she would not let him mate. I have tried a few times throughout the day and she wants nothing to do with him. So I'm wondering if she may be pregnant from the "induction mating?" Is it possible for her to hold that breeding while delivering the other litter?

    If she only had he litter 2 weeks ago I would wait and see, normally I wait until after the babies are weaned to even think about retrying unless they loss the litter then I give it a few weeks.She maybe pregnant or she may be extra maternal, some doe's will attack.
