    i can hardly wait! i have 4 pygmy does due in the next few weeks. they were all bred here to my cream/black pygmy buck. some had 5-day heats or heat signs a week or 2 after breeding so i'm not exactly positive on all their due dates. the earliest due date day 150, is jan 27 for the grey agouti and the black agouti. or they could be a week or 2 later along with my other 2 does. they're both light caramels. i had a terrible time getting pics this am and then camera batt died so i got none of the 1 doe. with all the bad experiences i've been hearing about i'm praying for safe healthy babies & moms! :pray: and for lots of :kidred: :kidred: :kidred: !

    Re: 4 does due soon! day 142

    i've moved daisy into a separate pen now along with her buddy. she's gotten really uncomfortable and moves very slowly. her sides are sunken and her back looks ridged at the hips. ligs are very soft. she had a little yellow discharge 2 days ago. i also have the twins myrtle & tinkerbelle in their own pen now. they're very hard to catch so i haven't tried feeling their ligs but they should be due in the next 2 weeks too. i haven't had winter babies before so i'm really nervous about them kidding in cold weather. it's way below freezing and only getting colder in the next week! i check the barn regularly and have a baby monitor on. how quickly would a baby die from cold if it has a good mom? i'm gonna try hard to be there but i worry a little.

    Re: 4 does due soon! day 148

    no babies yet. today is day 148 for daisy & myrtle unless they weren't bred till their 5-day heat. chloe & tinkerbelle are on day 141. they're udders are all quite equal in size although daisy's & chloe's do seem fuller. i'm expecting one of them will go first. last time daisy kidded triplets day 149, chloe kidded twins early morning day 144, and the other 2 singles on day 151. here's some updated belly pics. how many do you think for each?

    still nothing new! :GAAH: today was supposed to be day 150 for 2 does but i'm beginning to think they didn't settle till after their 5-day heat. i was really hoping for babies this week but may have to wait till next week then! their udders are filling slowly and ligs are soft. i sniffed polls but they all smell the same as my non-preggy doe. hoping for kiddies soon!!! :love:

    Pretty does! They all look to be having singles or twins! :greengrin: That head shot of Tinkerbelle looks IDENTICAL to a doe of mine that I bred! They look like the same goat!

    Good luck! Hope everything goes ok! :thumb: :shades: :wink:

    this afternoon tinkerbelle had a sweet baby boy! :kidblue: she was so quiet about it, i didn't catch on she was in labor until an hour before she kidded. he came quite quickly & easily too. he seems to have 1 floppy ear instead of upright like the other. do you think it will be held up eventually or will it always just hang?

    thank-you all! mamma & baby are doing fine. they have a heat lamp so i hope he's warm enough. i think his ear is beginning to lift a little.
    the other 3 does are getting close too. i'm just hoping they don't all go at once! i only have 2 pens with heat lamps and hoped to give each doe a day or two alone with her kid/s. and now we have a major snow storm on the way! just great!
