I have a mini Alpine buckling, who is about two months old. I have kept him separate from my does so that he doesn't breed them, because I have heard that bucks can breed at 6 weeks of age. Last night he somehow got out of his cage, and in with 2 of my Nigerian Dwarf 1 year old does. I did not want them bred, especially with him, because he has the same dad as them, and he is also a bigger breed, and I don't want birthing problems! Is there any way to know for sure if they got bred or not? I don't believe they are in heat, but I also have a hard time telling when they are in heat since I am not very experienced. Thanks!

While it could have happened, probability is low. He's most of likely not extending or able to reach the spot. Do continue to keep him separate! Find his escape.
