    Well my doe got mounted a total of 7 times by my 2 bucks on augest 28.

    Today i noticed her pulling some hair and messing around the the hay in her cage.

    When will she give birth?

    By soon I mean in the next few days if not tonight. I believe it's a 30 day gestation.

    Mine go for 31 days but I put a nest box in on day 28 so she can get it the way she wants it. Another thing you may have over bred your doe and she could have gotten pg in both horns. So you may end up with 2 litters of kits born a day or so apart depending on how many times in one day you did this.

    right away it sounds like, if there is no box she will have them on the floor of the cage and they won't be able to stay warm enough and die.
