false pregnancy

  1. Health & Wellness
    I'm in a bit of a tricky situation. For starters, I've never bred my goats before and one of them is having some issues. She is a 2.5 year old alpine that has never had kids or been with a buck up until now. About a year ago, I noticed an udder started to form and eventually she started to act...

    For some reason I'd never heard of false pregnancy in goats until today. I have a yearling doe who was confirmed pregnant via urine pregnancy test. She has a nice little belly and could have been due as early as August 12th or as late as September 1st due to the amount of time she was in with...

    We are in the subtropics and learning proper management has been difficult. We had a prolonged period of mineral deficiency and now I am wondering if it could have caused many of our does to become cystic? These days all of our girls all look outwardly very healthy. After improving their...
  4. Kidding Koral
    Hi all, I have been putting this post off for a couple of weeks because I thought I would be able to tell my self by now but I can't. Does this look like a false pregnancy? This doe is a mini fainting goat she only has 3 working legs. She is obese, BCS of 5. She is also on the older side. She is...
  5. Introductions
    :cowboy:Hello! Several weeks ago our oldest doe started showing signs of pregnancy. This was after almost all of our other does gave birth. She bagged up, moans when she's laying, her vulva gets puffy, and she's had mucus discharge. But she STILL won't kid! I was wondering if she's just wanting...

    I have a female Nigerian Dwarf goat that is 5 years old. She is housed with one other retired milker female who is 8 years old and four wethered males. Two of the males were banded as babies (one is 7 and one is 8) and the other two were castrated in one of the other ways, but I'm not sure how...

    Hi! Quick question to all you goat-savvy folks... I have two Nigerian Dwarf Goat does, neither have been bred or have left my back yard since we got them as just-weaned babies. They have had no interactions with other goats. Yet I've noticed one of my does has what looks like an udder forming...
  8. Waiting Room
    My Lamancha "Victory" is a 3rd freshener. She was introduced to the buck on Nov. 23rd and we saw her breed. This would give her a due date of Apr 22nd. We left the buck with her for 1 week. If the first breeding didn't take the latest breeding would have to be Nov. 30th, giving her a due date of...
  9. Waiting Room
    Sage is our first doe due--first time for us kidding. She is an alpine, FF, now at day 161 of what we thought was a pregnancy. We know the exact breed date --took her to buck on only one day. On day 159 we had a vet come out and do an ultra sound with a machine meant for cows and they didn't...
