I do not see how feeding AC vinegar could have any impact on the number of female kids a doe has...Goat's bodies have many buffers that keep their internal body pH constant no matter what they're fed...if a goat's body pH changed significantly, it would probably die. AC vinegar might change the pH of the urine, but not any of the tissue fluids. I could be wrong, but I think this is just a myth...

I think this method has more potential--I have always heard that the closer to ovulation a doe is when she is bred, the more likely she will have male kids, and the farther she is, the more likely she'll have females. This is because the "male" sperm are faster, but not as hardy while the "female" sperm are more robust, but much slower. The "female" sperm can survive much longer in vagina and uterus and can "wait around" for ovulation to occur...the weaker "male" sperm have a much shorter window of opportunity.
