We have another queen here for the week, very beautiful, first-timer, but with a hell of a temperament. Everything has been normal since she came here, until she came on heat again and began calling for the stud. Once I let him inside the room, I expected a lot of hissing and rejection and sure, that's the dance. But it usually is over within an hour. Not with this lady! She is very aggressive towards the stud FOR HOURS, he cannot even touch her and she is hunting him, trying to punch his face, very vocal and making aggressive sounds - it went on far too long. I removed the stud from the room for his own safety. But the queen has been calling him, again and again all day, and all the signs of estrus are there. She is extremely affectionate towards me and wants to be handled. But every time I put the stud in the room with her - she becomes aggressive and won't let him near her. She has probably called for him five or six times by now, yet refuses him every single time. What is going on? Is it possible she is still in proestrus after three days!?? My boy has some experience by now. Is she just nervous? It's her first time, but I have had other queens here on their first time and they had accepted him by now (he is a gentleman and very careful with the ladies). The question is: What do you think I should do going forward? Should I keep putting the stud with her eveytime she calls and hope she doesn't tare his face off? Or should we ignore her calls for the rest of the day and try again tomorrow? Any other tips on how I can make her more comfortable with him? Could she still be in proestrus although she is constantly calling?
