    It is probably her plug....some does start losing it early... as others do it closer to kidding..... it is normal... :hug:
    When she refuses to eat ...that is a great indication kiddo's are on the way... :wink: :greengrin:

    No - very frustrating. Some days I am sure that it's going to happen with the way she is acting and then there are days like today where I see no difference. The babies have definetely dropped. Her sides are totally sunken in and I can see her hip bones. Thank you for asking

    If her due date is 3/31 for 150 days, you can start to truly expect to see kids from the 26th onward, depending on her breed, mini's like nigies and pygmies tend to go around 145 days....standards closer to 150 and beyond. Also...the changes with eating are very different for each goat. Angel ate her grain and continued to nibble hay until she pushed the first kid out, with Binkey, she ate her grain but not her hay, with Bailey she was eating her hay but left her grain....anything that isn't normal for your girl to do is a sign of impending delivery.
