  1. Health & Wellness
    My doe is a ff and I'm a newbie. The other doe have birth fine yesterday while I was gone. This doe has had the bag hanging since 4am. Well, started at 4 and had been getting bigger. So, it has been hanging for about 7 hrs! I've noticed that this looks like the umbilical cord. Kind of freaking...
  2. Waiting Room
    Hello all! This is our first time and My husband got me a goat a few days ago that is already pregnant and supposedly due any day now. We have no idea when she was bread and was just told she should be going into labor any day now and leave it to my husband to not ask many questions. Just...

    I thought I would as these questions before I need to know them.;) What is the best sanitization routine to go through before "going in" to help reposition kids or check on what's going on in a stalled labor? I don't have water in or anywhere near my barn, so should I take a bucket of water...
  4. 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...

    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...

    I saw her on my remote camera lying on her side, back legs stretched out. I came out to check her and found this. I got her into the kidding stall and she's now pacing and licking her lips. Watching for contractions, but nothing obvious yet is this just he mucus plus, or is this the "amber goo"...

    Hello, so I have a mini silky fainting goat. Due date of April 27th, sonographed with one kid plus but seems to be one large kid. She is showing no signs of distress but everyone is suggesting induction since she is so overdue. But what is the best way to go about doing that? This is the first...

  9. Kidding Koral
    First off, I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum - if I'm not then I'm sorry! I'm just kinda of frazzled right now. I have a boer doe, this will be her second time kidding, due any day. I didn't have her ultrasounded so I don't have an exact due date but based on when I first noticed...

    I have a doe who is due next Saturday (the earliest she COULD be due is Wednesday as that would be 150 days from when she was put in with our buck). Friday night she started losing her mucus plug (white elmers glue type discharge). And since around noon yesterday (Saturday) she's had the super...

    So I have a doe who I believe is due a week from today (Saturday) - although if I go by when I put her in with the buck she could be due as early as Wednesday. Anyway, last night she lost her mucus plug (white and thick like Elmer’s glue) and today she has gobs and gobs of clear, stretchy mucus...

    I have a doe that is due literally any minute. Unfortunately though I don't have an exact due date. Her sides are sunken in, ligs are mushy, she lost her mucus plug Thursday night, she's gotten puffier since then and her bag is big (but not shiny/tight). All afternoon she's just acted off, and...
  13. Kidding Koral
    Hello! So I am brand new to kidding and have been more than blessed to have my first two does have easy, uncomplicated labors in which I missed entirely (and I've been obsessively watching these girls!). But my 3rd girl to kid, was not a happy ending. :( She had been constantly rubbing the...

    My doe gave birth to her third set of twins 40 hours ago. The babies are okay, but she is stilling laboring and moaning. A few hours after the births, I did a gentle interior examine for a third baby, but couldn't find one. Yesterday, she had fluid-filled bags of tissues hanging out. This...
  15. Waiting Room
    Hi all!! This is my doe Ana she is a FF. I estimated a due date of Feb 22nd at 150 days but she was with the buck before that too. Last week Monday her udder was about to explode and she started acting funny so I brought her into the garage due to -30° Temps. That was last Friday already...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. Kidding Koral
    I think I'm driving myself crazy! For a week now every time I look at my for I say to me self "yup I give it 12 hours and I'll have kids on the ground"... And everyday I'm disappointed. I'm starting to wonder if I'm imagining labor signs. So I want y'alls opinion. My doe is alpine/oberhasli...

    So. Today is day 139 of my goats pregnancy. She is a ND. This morning went to check her, ligaments can still be felt just mushier than yesterday. She is only pee like a tbsp every 5 minutes. (Odd) Her girl place also looks swollen and was almost like open. Should I put her in her kidding box...
  20. 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...
