    I have a doe that we bought the 28th of January of this year. We were told by the previous owners she was pregnant. We weren’t really knowledgeable with goats and kids but we’ve learned a good amount since. .. not sure how long she may have been pregnant prior. Assuming that she was. She has...

    Hello all! I'm a couple months out from three does kidding. I've read those are the two months where the kid does the most growing, so I want to help the mother out with some grain. How much should I feed them? There are 160 to 170 pound goats. This is the grain I would be giving them...

    Pregnant doe still has one kid. She has 3 months before kidding. I was milking her but the milk has gotten less and less. I want to stop milking her and am wondering if she’ll be able to dry off with a 5 month old kid still around. Kid doesn’t seem to nurse all the time but I do see her get...
  5. Waiting Room
    Hey all! My girl came back from being bred in late August/Early September! I was wondering if she looks like she was bred, and if her "pooch" looks as such? It seems as if she has a bit of an udder forming as well.

    Hey y’all! I have 2 does that have been playing tricks on me! I swear they are both bred but I have no clue when they’re due. I lost track last year due to a crazy fall.

    Good morning fellow goat lovers! I have a ff doe that’s looking to be kidding any day now. I’m unsure of her due date because we kept her in with our buck until we suspected pregnancy. This morning she is very mushy in the hind end, ligaments are barely there but she’s done this before too. Then...

    I’m buying a Nigerian dwarf doe that is due in about 3 weeks. Is it going to be too stressful on her to move her in the back of my SUV? I have a Nissan Rogue and I’m concerned if it will be enough space and if it will be too stressful. I have an extra large dog crate that will probably fit in...

    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 was away this weekend , and my dad was taking care of my goats, including my pregnant one. I suspect he was feeding them corn instead of the feed I usually give them. I am sure that is the cause of her stringy rectal discharge, but would their be any other causes? She is eating and drinking...
