Why Does My Buck Stomp His Feet at My Doe After Breeding?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby OldEnglishSilvers88 » Tue Jan 03, 2017 6:20 pm


So I bred my Silver Fox buck to my Giant Chinchilla does (both first time moms, but he has had 7 litters). After he bred them, he stomped his feet at them. Why? He's never done this before? He bred both with fall-offs but why the stomping? I thought stomping was a warning/fear related? :oops:

His way of bragging to the others that he's done the deed. Rabbits have some weird ways of communcating. I've read somewhere that their eyes bulging can be from excitement or fear (going from 0-100)

One of our members, years ago, had a Polish buck that celebrated his -uh- success by hitting his front paws together as though he were applauding his virility. That must have been a sight!

They also stomp their feet for other reason too. I have had does do it. I believe they use as a warning system. Or to say I had enough of you dont come any closer.
