  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    My goats have always been friendly and let me pet them, but they were never super clingy. The goat that I’m referring to was always tame but wouldn’t follow me around or anything. This afternoon I was doing my rounds and found that she had gotten out of her pen with the other pregnant females...

    Taylor gave birth in the middle of the night between Fri and Sat. I found them sat morning but she continued to have contractions. I thought it was for the placenta and she did pass a bloody bubble of goo. But it is now Sun morning and she is still pawing the ground, yawning, putting her head...

    Our doe kidded yesterday afternoon. The (big single) baby wasn't breeched, but the doe seemed to be pushing a lot without making much progress so I ended up helping pull the baby out by its front legs. After a few hours in a small pasture, I wasn't able to find the placenta anywhere so we gave...

    Hi guys! first time doe gave birth to healthy twins today! She’s doing great, eating, drinking, moving, taking care of the kids But when she’s laying down, she’s breathing very fast... then laying flat down still breathing fast. Is this something I should worry about?

    Forgive the freak out, but I just discovered that my doe who gave birth to twins two days ago has a horrible case of mastitis. Her udder is mostly lumps and I barely got a half teaspoon of milk out. I tested the milk and sure enough, she has mastitis. She's a two year old Nigora/Pygmy and this...

    Hello. I've only had two goats kid (both last year) and one was a nightmare that resulted in the death of my doe due to veterinarian negligence. I may be paranoid but want to get a more educated opinion on this girl. She is due on Friday (in 3 days) and will be a ff. I can't tell if this is a...

    Good morning fellow goat lovers! I have a ff doe that’s looking to be kidding any day now. I’m unsure of her due date because we kept her in with our buck until we suspected pregnancy. This morning she is very mushy in the hind end, ligaments are barely there but she’s done this before too. Then...

    We purchased a Nigerian Dwarf and were told she is pregnant. This will be her third kidding, but her first time with us and our first kidding. We have read articles, watched videos and feel we know what signs to look for. We were told she is most likely due late May/early June, but the buck was...

    Hey, I was wondering if it was safe and effective to use Cydectin (sheep oral drench) for 9 week old kids? I have the safeguard liquid too if that would be a better option. Let me know your opinions.

    Hi I’m new to this site and I have some questions about my 3 year old female Nigerian dwarf doe. 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 lovely spring blizzard this past week. It left us without power, phone, water or internet for a few days. And, of course, that's when Jasmine kidded. She did her work without so much as a grunt - so mellow! It was definitely the least "dramatic" birth we've ever had here. She...

    Hey y’all! I have a Nigerian Dwarf goat who is showing all the signs of labor but since this is our first goat to have kids, we are still a little in the dark. This picture is of her today. Y’all have any advice for how long she has or estimated drop? We’ve been doing a check every 2 hours...

    Why would baby goats not be moving? I've heard they could be getting into position, but are there other reasons?
  15. Kidding Koral
    Hi there! I have had Nigerian dwarfs for about two years but recently rescued two more. Turns out one of them is pregnant and it looks like she could be due any day now. She had a white string of discharge about a week ago, her udder is enlarged but not hard or shiny, and I can’t figure out the...

    How much longer do you all think she has, I think her babies have finally dropped!

    My Kiko for had a kid on Sunday and he has been drinking plenty of mom's milk but only from one teat. The other teat is pretty big. I managed to get ahold of her and squeeze some milk out of it but now she avoids me if I get too close. Think she will be ok? The kid is doing great.

    Does above her vulva look puffy to you guys? Is that normal? She is due in the next couple of weeks, and I wasn't sure if the puffiness was normal?

    I'm looking to buy a dehorner for my Nigerian Dwarf kids. Usually I take them to the vet, but I'm thinking it might pay for itself soon and might be a good investment. Do you use the 1/4" or the 3/8" ...what brand do you like? Thanks y'all for your insights in advance :)
