    Looks like someone (me!) didn't latch the gate properly, because last Thursday we had some mating going on. They were at it for at least 20 minutes that I saw. She's a proven breeder, and I'm not sure about him. He's intact, that's for sure.

    When do you re-breed to see if she's pregnant? It's 14 days, correct?

    Yes, it is approximately 14 days. I used to behavior test at 7 days (to see if she is cycling correctly) and then again at 14 days and then again 14 days later. My girls were pretty much on the 14 day cycle.
