Bunny's holding out on me!

My Dutch doe is really holding out on me. I expected her to kindle LAST Sunday. That was 8 days ago! I checked her yesterday and she's showing all the signs, good teats, increased blood activity, etc. I gave her more newspaper to nest with and she moved it around quite a bit.

Still, no fur, no kits, no nothing. She feels like she swallowed a tennis ball. C'mon girl! You can do it!

Expecting a pretty nice litter (looks like pretty big too) out of her. Now if she'd just HAVE them already...! Oi!

I put her in with the buck on August 29th, expected her to kindle end of September. I did keep them together for about a few days (normally I don't) as I didn't have a proper cage for her at the time. She should be due to kindle any day now...augh!

I'm really watching one of my younger does though. I had a doe that was supposed to be a doe, well lo' and behold it's a buck. Had been in with the two youngsters for quite a while (as I thought it was a doe). Ones regular, the other one has a bit of a belly, AND she dug out of the chicken tractor the other day. I'm hoping that she just picked up a worm from the wild birds (mine are all kept UTD).

Going to be worming her later, hoping and praying she's not preggerz.

Wait! I'll fix it....

Ahh waiting can be so hard D: Good luck with her, I'm sure you'll end up with some adorable kits soon... animals are funny. They love to play waiting games and trick us xD Not much difference there between horses and rabbits haha.
