labor signs

  1. Introductions
    So I have a 4 year old doe, Minnie, she has had 2 other kiddings that resulted well and had no problems. About a week ago she started showing signs of labor so we’ve kept a good eye on her, the thing I’m worried about is I don’t think it’s supposed to take over 6 days to kid! Her babies still...

    My doe may or may not be pregnant. I have ordered a P-Test. Pictures attached! This is why I think she may be pregnant: - Her stomach is getting big fast - Her udder is starting to grow into last years kidding size - She's pawing and laying down A LOT - She's bigger on her right side (which I...

    I have another thread here but I’m a little concerned. Has anyone ever had their does water break but not show major signs of labor? This morning when I checked on her, there was a wet spot on the wood that has never appeared before and it’s not near the water bucket. Is this normal? Her booty...
  4. Kidding Koral
    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...

    My pregnant doe (first freshener) is laying down rhythmically grunting. She isn’t due until April. She seems fine otherwise. Not discharge or anything. Should I be concerned or is this “normal”?
  6. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello! I am new here, but for the last month I have gleaned incredible amounts of information from this site. I am a new goat owner, and I have three toes that came to me pregnant, with no idea how far along they were. One of them looks as if she is very close to kidding, her sides of sunken in...
  7. Kidding Koral
    I bought 2 beautiful doelings last spring and was incredibly excited to start my dairy journey. Last August, we purchased a buck for them who had his own separate pen with housing where they could still see and talk to each other. I tried, and failed, to breed them multiple times. Until we...
  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hi! Newbie goat lover here!! I have 3 does that we predict are due to kid in about 6 weeks (didn't mean for them all to kid around the same time but I've heard that's how it works in the goat world!). 2 are first timers. One of the first timers has been acting "off" this week. Earlier this week...
  9. Waiting Room
    Hi All, I have two Boer does, who were bred in late May-mid June (one girl is clearly two to three weeks behind the other, not liking the billy much!) and the first girl, Hannah, appears to be in labor. (Not eating her hay, nor feed, nor treats offered, not moving around much, standing with hind...
  10. Waiting Room
    I bought a Boer doe at an auction on July 15th, 2016 (Today is September 7th, 2016) (I went with my neighbor to just look at stuff but saw her and fell in love), the auctioneer said she was pregnant but the owner wasn't there to answer how far along or when the breeding took place. Well, I have...
