I am sorry if this comes up more than once. I tried to post it, but something went wrong. Stacey, if this comes up twice go ahead and delete one of them. Thanks!

Here are some pictures I took of my does this afternoon. They sure are starting to look pregnant!

Here is Misty. She is due April 1st. She is looking the largest so far. She had a single buck kid last year, but has had twins and triplets before as well. I am guessing 2 or 3 kids for her this year. :D



Here is Misty's daughter, Raisin. Raisin is due March 24th. She had twin doelings last year. This will be her second freshening.


Here is Ivory. I wasn't sure if she was bred or not as she didn't get big as fast as the others and she carries them lower, but I am pretty sure she is pregnant now. Some days she looks bigger and some she is smaller. She would be due March 26th if she took when I think she did. Oh, she had twin doelings last year. This will be her second freshening. (Sorry about the glow, it was pretty cold out and the camera was fogging up.)





Here is Cookie. She is a full Nubian and this is her second freshening. She had a single buck kid last year. I am kind of expecting a single again as I felt a kid in her already and it felt pretty big. She is carrying it really high and isn't that wide for how high she is carrying it. She is due March 20th.


Here is Molly. She had triplets her first freshening last year! She is looking quite big already. She also carries them very low. Due March 23



Here is Montana. She is due March 24th. She had twins last year. This will be her second freshening.




Here is Rosebud. She is due around March 21st. She has had twins twice.


And lastly here is Windy. I don't have an exact due date for her but is should be around April 10th. She has had twins twice.


So, any guesses on how many kids? I have several other does that I didn't get photos of.

I sure hope you are more prepared then I was when I bred all my does like I did. I did not quite have enough kidding pens.
They all look great. Good luck, and here is to a happy and easy kidding season. :wahoo:

Actually we let them kid in their regular barn. They seem much happier that way. I just make sure the barn is clean and let them go. They seem to like having the other does with them. Also our Great Pyrenees stay with them. If the doe has kids fast and can't get to cleaning them all right away, there is usually another older doe (and the Pyr's) that will help clean them up. Of course I am out there most of the time, so if they have any problems they get help. This has worked well for us in the past.
