we have been trying to get them bred for two years. they were bred only once and didnt know and didnt show any signs til after they kidded (milk came in and they didnt seem to gain much weight). they have been with a billy since breeding age, different billys and have been trying to separate them and then reintroducing. we switched their feed and now im wondering if they are pregnant again or just gaining too much weight. since our first pregnancy didnt end well and we didnt even know they actually got pregnant im trying to be more PROactive. they are beening preg checked next week but was wondering what you guys all thought. thanks heather

That second one is very fat, and unless she swallowed the other goat, than she is pregnant :thumbup:

Lol, I agree, but if she's a Pygmy or Nigerian, she may just be fat. We had a couple for a while that were every bit as fat as that, if not more when they were open, even with very little feed! Not kidding; it's hard to tell with those little guys!

Sarah- NigerianGirl- Lol, yes they keep us guessing, right ?:wink:
I don't know if you saw before, but I was saying to you once on another thread that I think we may have some things in common! I wanted to use your user name at first, but I figured it was already taken and it was, so I went with NDlover instead. I don't like it as much, I'll probably change it to something else soon.

Nigies are the best, right?:hi5:

they were on the thin side and we wanted to put weight on them, but ofcourse that was around the same time that we introduced them to our new billy. i can still feel their ribs easily but it took so long to get them pregnant the first time so im not sure. also the billy is still in with them and he eats first so im not really sure how much grain they are getting. and he isnt over weight...ill post picture of him and the other girls that arent with the billy (too young
still).

Texas! But I've been in Arkansas before; well, I've passed through anyway. ;) I guess you'd say south texas.
Don't worry about the name, I'll think of something better than "NDlover":rolleyes: (I think it's kind of lame anyway)
How many Nigerians do you have? I only have two, but I'm working on increasing that number!;)
