About a week ago one of my does gave birth to quadruplets, during this time another one of my does began acting like she was in labor. She had this bubble that never came very far out. When she stood...

    We had a Nanny that wouldn't dilate so we took her to the vet and they performed a C-Section. Mom is recovering exceptionally. The kid was tiny at 6.1 lbs. He was one of triplets and the only one that made it home from the vet. The kid became a bottle baby. It has taken him days to be...

    Is it normal for doe's who have had multiples in the past to only have one kid? She is new to us but I know for a fact that she's had multiples in the past. TIA

    I purchased a yearling ND doe from a lady on August 31. All her goats were penned together with her buck, so she said she was possibly bred, but obviously had no idea when she would be due. Turns out she is pregnant, she started developing an udder around November 18. Anyway, I'm in northern...

    Hi, My goat has had a really swollen vulva, about the size of two baseballs, for 3 days now. The kid(s) also seem to have dropped into the birth canal two days ago. I just noticed a single red drop of discharge on her this morning, but she is still walking around and eating. I am afraid too...

    Ok, this is one of my more bazar questions... I just went out to check on our 9 new babies and I noticed one of the super possessive moms coughing. She then arched her back and walked away. I walked past her and noticed the thing in the picture sitting on the ground. She has something pink and...

    Hi there. We're new goat owners and we have a doe that seems to be having a difficult labor. She seems to be having contractions, but I can't see a baby goat or bag or anything. Instead, we see what looks like a wad if pink flesh. She pushes it out to something a little smaller than a tennis...
