    I checked my girls this morning Daisy is suppose to be 104 days today one of her teats seems to have been leakin its crusty on the tip and there appears to be dried milk/colostrum on the hair in front of her teat.....How likely is it that she could be farther along?(she was running with the buck) could she have had a false heat cycle. Help.......is this normal for a ff?

    Well I have had that happen with one of my does. I think for her it was just a hormone thing and her body getting ready, BUT. I am no expert at all, so I am sure someone that knows dairy goats will be able to answer you a lot better.
    When would she be due if she took the first heat cycle? Are you able to get a good picture of her cha-cha?

    She would be due march 11 if she took on the first heat i had wrote down.But she seemed to come in again on Nov 19 which would put her due April 17th. I haven't noticed any big differences with her back side awhile back there was a little bit of discharge but not much. I know if a horse waxes it isn't long until they give birth but I'm new to goats and am not sure if this is normal I check there bags but don't put any pressure etc...so it is apparently leaking. Daisy is getting crabby not her normal loving self.

    I would say she was bred on the first date and she had a false heat.Does she had a large udder?

    if her bag fills up in the next week I think she will go on her early due date. But if it stays the same you know she will wait it out.

    Goats will make funny noises and just lay about when pregnant. It is part of their way to make us go bald :hair:

    Is she a first timer? If so then she may go on time and may even wait until the day she goes into labor to fill her udder. Right now to me she looks to have a week or 2 to go. The grunts and other noises are normal preggy goaty sounds...you will definately know when she's in labor! A mama will talk to her babies even before they are born....it is something you will not hear again once her kids are 2-3 weeks old, at labor and delivery is the time you will hear her talking the most. Also. check her ligaments often so you get the feel of them being there and not there. Theres a post somewhere here that shows how to feel for them...I think Ashley (Sweet Gum Minis) posted it. You will be fine and so will Daisy.
    Yippeee more babies to see soon! :stars:

    She is so cute. She is looking at us like "why are you looking at my butt"?

    I have to say, You better be getting ready for the early delivery. I had a doe that did not have a utter near as big as yours and she kidded. I thought she was about 3-4 weeks later, but I went out one morning and met her little doe.
    BABIES VERY SOON. Thinking PINK :girl: :girl:

    Ok my daughter is feeling better and daisy has me scratching my head the only ting different today is ....If you lay your hand flat on her hips and rub down from her tail It feels like theres no flesh there before there were indents near her tail head now all you feel are bones it looks like her butt has dropped off. :scratch:

    If you are noticing that - then it sounds like she is VERY close to delivery. My girl startde being very affectionate and letting me rub her head (she is very head shy) 24 hours prior to delivery!!! How is her udder? Does it feel so tight that it will pop yet?
