So I've only just learnt that nannies might be able to produce milk but at the moment I have two does which I paired to the same buck at the same time. One doe became pregnant and had a litter, both of the does produce milk and both feed the babies. The second doe seems to have quite a swollen belly now and appears pregnant b ut not ready to pop yet. In theory she could be pregnant, but only at a stretch. The buck would have to had mated her moments before I took him out!

So my question is, is she likely to be experiencing some kind of false pregnancy or serious weight gain related to feeding the existing litter?

Time will tell I suppose. Its her first litter, do you think maybe this has lead to an extended gestation?
