    I have a Nigerian Dwarf doe that is 50 days bred. For about the last 3 weeks, she has been acting very differently. She doesn’t want to be around the other 2 does and will only eat when they are not around. She is otherwise healthy but I am wondering if this is normal. Should I let her stay alone?

    So e do change their habits. I would also be looking to make sure she is getting enough to eat and drink. You could set up another jay rack and water bucket. Maybe one of the other does has decided to be a bully as well.

    Some pregnant goats protect their babies from within and do not want to be slammed or hit.
    So they stand off a bit.
    I seen it before.
    Be sure she gets her feed.
