pregnancy

  1. Health & Wellness
    I have a 2 year old Nigeria dwarf doe who has been in with a buck since October, and is still not pregnant. This is her first breeding. She was clearly in heat when I put her in with the buck, but hasn't shown any signs since. She's shown very little interest in the buck the whole time, and he...
  2. Waiting Room
    Hey y'all. Newbie here with my gals Coco and Zeppy. We're all new to this kidding thing. My girls are FF and Coco is due March 6-7, and Zeppy is due any time between March 6 & April 10. I think Zeppy is likely due between March 13 and 20th though based on heat signs and a messy rear end.
  3. Dairy Diaries
    My doe Pippi had some issues with staph this past year. Nothing too major, and I think it was caused by her immune system getting overtaxed. I have addressed what I believe to be the underlying issues there, so hopefully, her next freshening will be better. But I thought it might be wise to give...

    So this is a weird one. I've got two pregnant does, one who is 105 days into her second pregnancy, and one who is a first freshener at 82 days. The first freshener is probably carrying triplets (we can see two on ultrasound for sure, vet thinks she is hiding another one up front). I have been...
  5. Waiting Room
    Wow...I usually post way earlier in the season than this. Just....Life. Anyhoo, we have 4 does due to kid. 3 are first fresheners and one is an old pro. Here's the line-up: On day 147 is FF Jasmine. She isn't huge, so I'm thinking she'll have 2 tiny twins or a single. We have a nasty...
  6. Beginners Goat Raising
    Background: I have four Nigerian Dwarf does and one buck (plus a Boer baby, but he doesn't factor into breeding!:P) Three of the ladies will be one in April. I plan on breeding two of them this May and one the following fall. The last I will wait until next spring because she had a setback after...

    I have had my Mini Nubian doe May for three years now, and every winter she develops what seems to be the same condition. She refuses to eat, stands away from the herd, doesn't move around much... even that very first winter, with my extremely limited goat experience (she and her mate, Kombucha...
  8. Parasites
    We just treated our does with Valbazen. How long should we wait before letting Buck into pasture with them? None were pregnant when treated, but is there a waiting period, since this dewormer isn't safe for pregnancy?
  9. Beginners Goat Raising
    So I bought a doe that had been bred but her mate was killed by a dog, she was attacked and the owner didn’t want to deal with her. After taking her to the vet, getting the maggots out of her leg and treating her with penicillin shots for about a 1 month and a half she had healed up. Well I...
  10. Goat Management
    Hi everyone, We have had a horrible year and I was hopeful things would improve. We had a few issues last year (after 7 years of no issues) culminating with the loss of my daughter's precious doe to a rare issue after 4 months of fighting to save her. We hopefully had 6 does bred..We...
  11. Waiting Room
    I have two Boer girls on their second freshening. The billy was here through July 25th. Aren't we already past the latest due date today? I've gone down every day in the past three days thinking, "I'm making this up, they aren't pregnant." But clearly they are. Thoughts? The billy was just over...
  12. Health & Wellness
    So back in mid august I put 4 does in with my buck and end of beginning of september my 1 year old dapple I had just bought got through the fence in with the buck. I'm not sure if it's because she was being picked on or if she was in heat but the buck did breed her. Shes 80 pounds so I wasnt...
  13. Goat Frenzy
    About a week ago, I finally got my goats! They are pregnant and are due late December/early January! Can't wait to have some new babies on the farm :) Luna is trying to get the treats and Diamond is in the background.
  14. Health & Wellness
    So I just found out I’m expecting baby #4! What are some medicines, dewormwrs, Idk whatever, that I need to stay away from and make my husband handle for me? Basically what isn’t safe for me to handle during pregnancy? Thanks for your help!

  16. Kidding Koral
    Forgive me, I posted this in health and wellness and I'm going to see if I can delete it there because I posted it in the wrong place. My intention isn't to spam. Okay, to make a very long story as short as I can (sorry, I'm a writer), we've definitely lived farming life, which I describe as...
  17. Waiting Room
    Groovy Grunders' Farm is waiting on 4 (presumably) pregnant does. First up is our oldest doe, Annika. She's almost 8. This will be her 6th pregnancy and her 5th kidding. Last year she got bullied and rammed and sadly, miscarried. This year, she's still low goat on the totem pole, but she...
  18. Waiting Room
    Ok...So Annika is a 7 year-old (almost 8) Nigerian pregnant for the 6th time. All her pregnancies and kiddings have been textbook - easy and uncomplicated. However, last year the other 3 does ganged up on her and she miscarried fairly early on. Now she's about 7 weeks from her due date (April...
