does anyone else out there have Holland Lops?.........and if so do you find it hard to get them to breed? I am not sure if it is just my young doe or if it is a breed thing with them ..........she wants to just sit down hard an tuck her tail when the buck tries to mount her......I think I remember reading somewhere about HL being difficult to get to breed but not sure any input from anyone???????

Is this year your first time breeding them or have you had trouble breeding them? I asked because we had a terrible winter and spring breeding Jersey Woolies. Normally all of our nest boxes would be full but this year was different. Proven does not bred or only having a single kit. Things are better now. The Holland breeders will have to give you specifics.

I have holland lops and experienced this same thing. However...it's now been 24 days since we "bred" them and she is looking more and more pregnant. She is bigger, firmer and her durlap is filling in. So...what we thought was an unsuccessful breeding attempt may end up being successful after all. This is our does 1st time breeding also.
I'll keep you posted, we should have babies next week if it was successful!
