    Ok I don't know how to put this delicately. I've only owned bucks since I have had these babies, 6 months. They are just now "hitting puberty". I was sitting in my buck pen watering them when all of a sudden one bucks pizzle came out and he turned around and mouthed it until he ejaculated in his own mouth and then ate it. No I am not kidding. I am not easily affected by anything but that is the last thing I ever expected to see. THEN about 2 minutes later the other one did it!!! There's 3 boys, all about 6-7 months and they still act like cute little babies until about this week when now they are pushing me with their heads, and now this.

    I know bucks have unusual behaviors, but now I'm weirded out.... PLEASE TELL ME THIS NORMAL!!?!!?!!

    Oh and if you get it on you...it takes alot to get it out of clothing and off your skin. That smell... there isn't a word in the English language to describe it.

    Also if your buck tries to flirt with you, watch out. ;) a full grown buck trying to jump you is frightening the first time. :lol:

    Bucks are such total lovable, huggable creatures during rut!

    You have to understand them to love them....their mentality:

    1) Can I breed it?
    2) Can I eat it?
    3) Can I tear it up?
    4) If unsure, do all of the above.

    Also watch out if they stand right next to you...they are going to pee on their legs and your legs since they can really spray that stuff.

    Oh and sometimes they will just be standing/walking and just suddenly go into a position similar to a doe urinating and begin ejaculating. Just randomly... they may even keep trying to walk with the front legs.

    I always have trouble getting my bucks to eat while in full rut. So watch for dehydration and weight loss.

    And if you are a female and that special time of the month is what you are going through, watch out, they sense that and you DO NOT want to be around them. To them, you are fair game.........just be careful.
