    I have a new Zealand that I bred on July 5th. She made a nest, pulled her fur out and everything. She did that on day 32. It is now day 43 and no babies. Can anyone tell me what is going on with her?

    My guess is that she had a false pregnancy. Have you palpated her? You could put her in with the buck for a few minutes and see what happens.

    I was learning towards a false pregnancy also. When I put her with the buck she just wines and won't lift for him.
