    I have 2 of my best does kidding out this month!! (NPGA Pygmies) One is my BEST doe with AMAZING pygmy lines (and a great shower!!!! Got several Jrs, Reserve Jrs, and a GRAND at my fair) her name is K & J Pygmies Isabella (Isabella) and she is bred to my amazing buck from GA!! She's due on the 13th at the earliest and is huge!!! Hoping for PINK!! :girl:

    The other reg doe is a proven doe and has been tricky to say the least. Last year we bought her bred and she drove me crazy waiting till day 151 to kid!! My first kids born yet to boot! :hair: And she, Crystal, was bred to the same buck as Isabella! One date late March the other late April. I was thinking April....but nope discharge, restless, baby talk, nesting, loosing ligs...EVERYTHING AND STILL NO KIDS!!!!! :hair: :hair: :hair: !!

    Re: Kids Are HERE!

    Thanks! I walked in to the kidding pen (no one told me she kidded but I put two and two together) and saw those two and I almost said she only had 2?! But they showed me the little boy. He was super skinny and his hooves were still white, so I am assuming that he was stillborn.
    But ths is the doe I wanted a doeling out of SO badly! And I got 2!!! :leap: :wahoo: :dance: :leap:
    Now I am waiting on my Crystal to kid then I have a rest until July. Think :girl: :girl: :boy: !!

    Re: Kids Are HERE!

    Congratulations!!! Sorry you lost the litlte boy , those girls are adorable! I love those chubby lil' faces :love:


    Amazing how I end up with "both" pygmy and nigi looking kids from one mum...seeing your PB pygmy's , I can really see the difference between nigi and pygmy in my Angel's boys...pygmy babies have shorter more erect ears!

    Congrats on the two doelings!!!! They are cute! My first goat was a pygmy. Although my folks weren't to thrilled about me having a pygmy-I was glad I had them.

    Re: Bad Luck

    Well. We lost the other doe. I am really upset. This came out of no where. :tears: She just died. She wasn't even in labor. My wonderful grandfather who keeps the goats at his place because I can't keep them where I live, took a knife after she was gone to try to save the kids. She had triplets in her. :tears: This doe was a Nigerian Dwarf's weight, wasn;t in with other goats during her pregnacy or anything. She just died. And she's always kidded unassisted. No problems what-so-ever. Until yesterday.
    I got to see her after she was gone. Her and her three babies. (she had her first set of triplets too!). If anyone has any idea what it may be please tell me. I would like to figure out what happened.
    What really sucks is that she had one of each color. A light caramel, a black agouti, and a brown one. This is the first brown kid out of 12 from this buck that's been brown. And all were :girl: . :tears:

    These kids were massive for her. She was a tiny and petite doe. They all are twice the size of the other kids I have. 4-5 pounds at least for each one. I think I may sell the awesome buck which is the sire because his kids have been too big and I've only had problems delivering his kids.

    I am more upset over loosing her. I really need losts of :grouphug: . I lost 4 does this week and a buckling. My life really sucks.

    Thanks for listening to my problems.

    I'm sorry. I've been in that situation before. Never had much luck doing those pocket knife caesars. only about 10% success.

    Selling the buck sounds like a good idea ...

    As for the doe, I dont know. Preg tox? But that usually takes a while ... uterine rupture?? I dont know :shrug: :scratch:
