  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    We have 7wk old ND kids. 2 buckling, one doeling. How long can we keep them together without risk of the doe getting pregnant. Planning to wether boys, but hoping to hold out as long as possible. These will be pets. Not breeding. Hate the idea of keeping her separate.

  4. Beginners Goat Raising
    We‘re going to pick out our first goats in two days! Two pregnant Nubians who are within a week or two of their due dates. Anything particular that we should look for since they are near the end of pregnancy or questions we should ask when we go to pick them out? We are buying from a breeder who...

    I woke up this morning to check on my pregnant doe who’s close and her eye was like this. It’s sunken in and funky. Her nose is also a little gunky. Anyone have any ideas? It wasn’t like this last night. Here is her other eye for comparison.

    Hi everyone! I posted about this doe a little while ago because of her scabs on her udder and general sickness. The forum determined it was probably staph, and so I’ve been treating her for that. She’s due literally any day now. Last night, I was brushing her (like I do every night) and felt...

    I got this doe back in November who was supposedly bred. Three days after getting her home, this stringy discharge with a sort of bulb at the end (shown below) appeared. She started pawing at the ground, grunting, getting up and down, and had kinda gummy ligs; all what I thought to be labor...

    So I got this doe, Georgia, in January. The owners tricked me into thinking she was super pregnant and healthy, but that turned out to be anything but. I got her back and took her to the vet and he told me she had tapeworms, an upper respiratory infection, and that her blood test came back...

    Some of you are already familiar with my Beulah. I don't have an EDD for her, we kee our buck and her together (used to lol) but she's progressing nicely, it's just hard for me to tell what's going on with her. I'm a new goat momma and this is my very first time kidding. I'm very excited! Here...
  10. 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.

    For those who don't know, I have two pregnant does, Bella and Prim. They are both approximately two months pregnant. Recently I've noticed that Bella does not want Prim eating at the hay rack with her. This is very unlike her. They've were raised together, and Bella's has been fine with...
  12. Kidding Koral
    This doe is 9 months out from her first freshening. I was thinking she had just gotten fat (she's the herd queen so she takes more than her share!), but now I'm wondering if one of the little bucklings born 6 months ago could have done the deed before being pulled from the herd at 8-9 weeks. Her...
  13. Beginners Goat Raising
    So on July 13th my doe I'm planning to breed this season started showing signs of heat. Lots of tail flagging, mounting the little wether, some puffiness around her vulva. So we took her to the farm we received her from for a driveway date with a buck, which appeared to go...ahem...very well...

    Hey guys! I'm new here and fairly new to Goat keeping. I've got a trio of Nigerian Dwarf Goats (two Ewes and a Buck). Being the newb that I am, I did not make note of Trouble's last heat date and a month ago I started noticing changes in behaviour and shape so I've been keeping a close eye on...
  15. Goat Management
    We purchased a Nigerian Dwarf and were told she is pregnant. This will be her third kidding, but her first time with us and our first kidding. We have read articles, watched videos and feel we know what signs to look for. We were told she is most likely due late May/early June, but the buck was...
  16. Goat Management
    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...

    Why would baby goats not be moving? I've heard they could be getting into position, but are there other reasons?
  18. Kidding Koral
    How much longer do you all think she has, I think her babies have finally dropped!
  19. Health & Wellness
    One of my does is scabbing and losing fur around her ankles and hooves... I've read about administering Ivermectin, but I believe she is pregnant, and I don't want to risk her losing her kids if she is. She is likely to be due here in April. (Not 100% sure because I didn't see her come into...

    Forgive my horrible finger getting in the way haha. Remedy is getting closer, and closer, and i am getting more and more antsy! She has started separating herself from the herd, and is grooming herself like mad. She is even letting me love on her, which she never does.
