I have a practical question for anybody in the UK or Europe who has bred dominant red (Ay/*).

I've heard that the females need to be bred by 8 weeks and often go infertile young. How young?

How often is it that you breed a red female and she has problems in delivering or is a poor mother?

I know these things are supposed to happen but I've never had anyone give me first-hand accounts of breeding red does...

Sarah (sarahc) has the most experience in this. I think she breeds her does at 8-10 weeks for the first time to prevent obesity and infertility. I am not sure whether she leaves the buck in with them or not... I'm sure she'll be along to offer some good advice :)
