    So we have a doe that's a little over a year old, we aren't sure when she was bred but we know she's pregnant. She's acting really close but she seems to start and stop, she was having contractions for a few nights but she hasn't had any in a couple of days. She seems to make a lot of progress...

    Recently I noticed that my Nubian doe, Maddie Lynn, has clear fluid in her teats. She's three years old and she's never had a kid or been bred. Other than the fluid I've also noticed she's had a small change in personality, but not anything crazy. Other than that, she is acting fine and healthy...

    Hello all! I have a yearling Nigerian dwarf that was confirmed pregnant 2 weeks ago (first time freshener) via ultrasound, but he could only see one. He said it appeared really early and to come back, so that’s what we did today. Well, today he couldn’t find the baby anywhere, so he’s thinking...

    Hello! So I’ve been trying to find a general timeline and signs of pregnancy, but all I can find is the gestation for the babies and how THEY grow throughout pregnancy. What about mama? At what day will she likely start showing signs, and after that day what days should I be looking out for that...

    I have heard about the bleach test to determine pregnancy in goats. So I gave it a try with our one goat we have been going back and forth on if she is pregnant or possibly false pregnant. She has become larger looks pregnant but no babies yet. .... also very possible I was off with my count...

    Silly question, I know! But when I looked it up I didn’t find much info. I know lactating does benefit from alfalfa, but I’m curious if pregnant does need it too, or if it will just fatten them up and make delivery harder. Thanks!

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
  12. 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...

    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?
  15. 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...
  16. 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...

    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...

    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...
  19. 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.
  20. 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!
