  1. Waiting Room
    Hi, I'm new here. Been reading the forums and decided to sign up and ask my own questions. I'm new to breeding goats but had some growing up. I got 2 ND/pygmy mix does the beginning of the year. I got a buck and he was with them from February 8th to the 22 and then he left the property...
  2. Kidding Koral
    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...
  3. Waiting Room
    I have raised goats for the past couple of years and I have never ran into this issue. I bought a goat from a lady who could no longer handle all the goats she had. Me and a friend purchased 6 goats that day. All of these girls ended up being pregnant and the lady didn't know their breeding...

    I've got an alpaca who we took to be bred last easter. Apple of My Eye was away on her "romantic getaway" from April 10th to May 11th 2014. We know she was bred at some point in that month. However, going by a May 5th date, she is getting to be overdue, as I have read that the average gestation...

If the first breeding didn't take the latest breeding would have to be Nov. 30th, giving her a due date of...

    Our nubian doe, Pepsi, was due to have her kids several days ago.... We're on day 158 and still no signs of labor. Everything was looking fine until I went out to milk the goats this afternoon and Pepsi's udder (left side) was swollen significantly more than the other side. It was not that way...

    Iris definitely knows the doe code, because she is slowly driving me insane waiting for this. We have no due date as she and her buck snuck out several times like teenagers last year. Her ligaments come and go, and she shows signs of early labor only occasionally! Udders are pretty big but...
  9. Kidding Koral
    Hi I have an Oberhasli doe that is two days past due. I have never gone through a kidding before so I am kind of concerned. I have checked the ligaments and they are mushy, and her udder has not "filled", however her teats have enlarged. She does seem a little more talkative than usual. I also...
