Being pregnant when too young and still growing robs the mom of nutrition and things needed for her growing body. It can affect the mothers growth and development.

There is more risk of birthing problems so make sure you have a list of vets including emergency vets in case she ends up needing emergency care.

Ensure she is getting good quality food and keep close watch on her for any problems that could be developing.

I do not know of any of the consequences but I do think you should mark down on a calender the day they mated and when the possible birth could happen just so you know how long you can prepare yourself for if are babies. I read in the "Breeding basics" topic that the gestation period is about 35 days-49 days.

Your brother has risked the life of the female. How old is your brother?

Please feel free to contact Nancy or I by email, if you need anymore help.
