Thanks for looking
Dominance/pecking order.... but---If the buck's going to be used for a
Breeder..... Isolate him. A young buck is easily intimidated in this fashion
and may well be affected in refusing to breed when he's needed. ALWAYS
use caution when placing a doe in a young bucks' pen... NEVER let the doe
dominate him OR become aggressive. Keep him safe from harm till he's
had a few dozen breeding's under his belt.

If he is going into a breeding program he needs to have the confidence to do his job. A sister always whooping him can leave a mental mark.
Personally, I don't let my dogs get away with it, so I don't tolerate it in the rabbitry either. Just my thoughts.
