When I put my doe out to get exercise in her play pen, then try to take her out, she lunges at me and has left marks on my gloves. But in her cage she doesn't do that. It just started right after I had her breed.

Hormones? Is she a first time mom? A lot of young does become aggressive between puberty and their first litter. Most of them snap out of it once the babies start coming.

Hmm, most of my does mellow until the nesting sets in, but if she is in a new area, and not sure, be careful of how you approach her, Like I said, I have does I just grab, and other that require proper handling or else.

Watch your hands, if they are 'territorial' during the pregnancy, the usually don't improve until the kits are out of the nest box.

She is back to her nice friendly self. If we get her to excited in the cage she does go into the nesting box and doesn't come out.
But as long as we are calm so is she. So Glad,Don't like angry Bunny attacks:)

Two of my white satin does (Stratus and McCool) each have mean streaks that are about 2 feet wide :evil: :evil: . One of my black does (Zoe) also has her moments when she's ornery as a crosseyed coon, too. :angry:
