    Does anyone have any tips or tricks for a doe who wants to play hard to get with the bucks?[​IMG]

    I was having the same problem and turns out I was putting them in with the buck at the wrong part of their cycle. Now, I turn them on their backs and have a look at their genital area. If the vulva is bright red, she should be ready. If it's pink or a pale color, she probably won't be in the mood. If she's used to you handling her, you can also get her in a corner and gently flip her back legs out behind her so she is in a relaxed position and hold her there for the buck. I've never tried that way but I heard it works for some. Good luck!

    Very true, I have had to use the holding method due to one of my bucks being a real midge haha & couldn't stay on with the doe lifting her bum up!

    These are my babies at 3 days old. 3 black, 3 chestnut, and one undetermined. It's the one at the top. It looks like a chestnut but it is a lighter color. Anybody know what this is?

    I was thinking about trying that, didn't know it was a real method, but I thought it might be bunny r*pe. [​IMG]
    Would this method be not as good for conception because it might cause her too much stress?
    I have checked her vent and it is dark red.
    She weened her kits about 3 weeks ago, maybe she just isn't ready yet?
    Also, when I had them together the other day, she mounted him, curled up, and fell to her side. There's no such thing as transgender rabbits are there?

    I just got this girl yesterday, I'm very happy with her, she has a great personality.
    She's only about 2 months old so her wool will change a bit.

    O WOW!!! She is lovely, can't wait to see her when she's mature
    The pic is a little hard to tell, but you may have a tort or orange. Are you able to take a pic with that one & 1 or two others together for comparison?
