And then one morning we found the nest box stuffed with Molly’s fur! It was early morning and I was on my way to work, so I only took a quick snapshot and did not disturd the kits to see how many.
I’ve read that you should not be scared to scratch in the nest after kindling to check how many kits there are, and if they are all alive. But it does feel a little invasive so early after the doe has kindled. Maybe with some time and practice it’ll get better.
