I was just wondering. I purchased a couple bred does back in March. 2 different farms. Ever since they have been put together the one consistently is chasing and stomping the other. The stomper has had her fawns 2 weeks ago and the other is due this week. I am nervous that the stomper will go after the others helpless fawns once they are born. Question is can I put the doe and her fawns back into the pen she was in up till may alone or do I take the chance everything will be OK with the other does fawns when she does. Don't know if it will cause problems at this point changing pens. Thanks for help!

I had a doe I had to pull out cause she tried to stomp others fawns...

It all depends on the deer...If you are feeling there may be a problem...There probably is

I agree with Painted if you have another pen to put the doe with fawns in I would move her and her fawns. Since one has fawns and the other is getting ready to fawn it shouldn't stress them to be split up. JMO

move the pregnant doe to her own pen. or for sure her fawns will be stomped.

OK thanks a lot. On my way to split up. I have a bottle fed that I can put in with the doe expecting till She fawns. First fawns on the farm. Just a little paranoid. Something might go wrong with them together ha ha. Thanks again.
