    She definitely looks pregnant, and starting to square off.

    About how long will it take for her to start giving birth? Should I put her in a breeder box, and if so when?

    Boxing off is usually a sign that they are within a few days of delivering.

    I wouldn't put her in a breeder box, because that usually stresses them out too much, and may cause her to abort them.
