'Peewee' is acting like she's in estrus. Her vulva is deep red. She's 6wks old.

Looks like a normal doeling, they can go thru various shades even as youngsters and even though they really don't have a true heat cycle in the end and just more apt to breed with dark/deep pink/purple looking.

WHEW Thanks... starting to think I'm going nuts with this gender stuff.
I only have one obvious buckling out of the litter, the rest basically look like this, so have been labelled as does... (no gender guarantees of course). :p

Nope, the baby cooperated. :D Just depends on their mood I guess, sometimes they will just lay there all chill and let me do whatever I want, other times they kick and struggle a bit. I had one try to take a chunk out of my while double(quadruple)-checking gender. She did not want me to mess with her bits. :lol:
