Pooch tests don't always work I had a doe people judged as pregnant and she had never been with a buck cause two years later no kids! She has kidded this year with twins tho.

Nothing always works. Even blood tests can be off if the fetuses have just been reabsorbed. But they are the MOST reliable method if one truly has to know. I personally have never resorted to them, but I sure have thought seriously about it more than once as I tried to make plans...

I find that when someone insists that a certain method always works, confirmation bias is active.

I'm going to go with not pregnant, but I guess we'll see.

Yeah, Dayna, so do mine. In fact, I went and checked just to be sure this past winter when someone told me that they swear by that method! I had that woman check, also, and she guessed wrong on several does.

I guess you gotta do what you feel works best for your farm.
