    Has anyone ever had a pregnant doe act like she's in heat? That is what Taxi is doing. She's not flagging her tail or anything but she is talking to the bucks like she did when she was in heat before. I have 4 other does in heat so could she just be acting this way because of that? She is looking quite round though.

    Sometimes they’ll act like they’re in heat because of all the pregnancy hormones.

    Take her to the buck on the opposite side of the fence and test her. If she tail wags her tail, pees and shows interest, she is in season.
    If she pee's, then turns away uninterested, she is just hormonal. ;)

    Midnight's udder tonight. Any guesses on when she'll kid? Earliest she could go is February 28th. Latest is end of March.

    Also, seems like Taxi was just hormonal not in heat. But does she look bloated to you guys? Looks like bloat to me but it almost feels like a kid sitting on her left side too. Was a little firm when I pressed in but not hard. The bulge actually moved away when I pushed it in. But would it be too early for kids to be on that side? She's due April 15th.

    Midnight may be around March.
    Her udder needs to fill more.


    Taxi, that is not bloat, just a full rumen, she is OK.

    No kids are usually on the left side, she isn't that far along.

    Feeling kids is on the right, rumen on the left.

    I'm going to guess end of February/early March just going off of what our first timers tend to look like a month out. I hope she doesn't make you wait forever!

    Not sure about your other doe, how does she look now and act?

    That's my guess too. Really hoping she doesn't make me wait lol luckily with Taxi I have an exact due date.
    Taxi is doing good today. Probably was just a full rumen. I've been stressing about every little thing with then since I lost my one doe unexpectedly.

    Thank you!
    So bad news, Midnight somehow reopened the cut on her leg. And the weird thing is she now has one on the same exact spot on the other leg. I'm kinda thinking she's chewing them but not sure. Both were bleeding and she wasn't wanting to walk very much. She's super gimpy. I cleaned them up and smeared nu stock on her legs. Anybody have a guess as to what it could be?

    Almost seems as if there is something sharp where she goes to and is reacquiring.
    Look around for a nail or something that may of cut her.

    She is in a completely different pen than she was in when it first happened
