I bought a doe 6 months ago and she has sensitive feet so she's in a cage full of shavings. She loves chewing a digging so she tends to shove all the shavings out of the corner she uses and often times covers her feeder and out the cage. It's really messy and she keeps having to get a bath because she's peeing on wood and sitting in it since all the shavings are piled on the other side of the cage. Any idea how to fix this?

If it is a sore hocks issue, a piece of plywood,
or a wide board for her to sit on,
usually does the trick.
** just make sure her "potty corner" is not covered by the board..
[so she doesn't pee on the board, and then sit in it]
a piece of willow, or apple wood in her cage, will satisfy her chewing needs...

She's 10 days pregnant, is it fine to move her? I've never had a reason to move a pregnant doe so not sure if it'd be stressful

You can move a doe who's only 10 days pregnant.
