My New Zealand White was born this May, he tries to mate (unfortunately) only when shes not having her heat of the time ,when i put them close , he just pretends he is sleepy and cant do nothing.

In such a case, when the doe isn't aggressive, I did just put the doe in the bucks hutch for a few days. She wasn't too happy about that, and turned from white/grey to yellow/brown, but it worked.

Another way that works for me every single time is to let their hutch doors unlatched, accidentially, and go away for some hours, I guess feeling smug makes them horny... :evil: , had two surprise litters this year...

Careful about leaving them unattended for long. I have a family friend who lost his buck's genitals to an annoyed doe who was left overnight in the cage. Yours is four months old (May to September). Sometimes they don't kick in until a little older.
