I did the same thing with my ND doe (she's my only ND doe old enough to breed) :p at least I think she's bred, I kind of hope it didn't take, lol. I'd rather not have kids in the cold, and I am still learning about what to feed and all, so without realizing dropped her feed quite a bit right after breeding her. :/ I really want her to have multiples, so I really hope it didn't take so I can have another shot at breeding her while feeding lots of protein. :eek:

Busy Bee is wailing at us to let her make babies. I'm telling you, she loves babies so much, she feels like she needs to be pregnant, or nursing them at all times. We sold her last little baby and she went into depression for a few days. Ever since, she's been trying to dry up and make a break for the buck pen whenever she can -- and she's not even in heat! Poor thing. I told her she'll have more babies soon enough. :laugh:

We had a little hen like that. She would sit and something would break up her eggs, she did that three times in a row. Do you know how hard sitting is on a hen? They rarely even get up to eat or drink. She finally hatched out some and I was so glad, then as soon as she weaned them she was back with the rooster.:hammer:

I have a doe like that too! She stands out there and just SCREAMES!!! This horrible hoarse yelling! I would say I would breed her to shut her up but she won't take! She has something against by young bucks and won't let them anywhere near her even when she is in standing heat... :-/ So weird...

Well, gladly she doesn't scream, I don't seem to have screamers, thank goodness. :laugh:

She does a mournful sort of wail, it's a quiet sound. One of the saddest little whimpers I've ever heard. :laugh: "Pleeeease, I want more babieeeesssss."

Skyla, I would like to aim for early summer, but my mom wants spring, so we will have to strike a deal of some kind. ;)

Haha, silly girls! I've tried holding her but she gets really upset, aka, MORE screaming. So we will see about her!
I am shooting for March/April kids other than the two I just bred. This year we had them all in June and July and that didn't fit into the show schedule we have around here.

You know, there are lovely little goatie coats that Dreahook farm uses. If you find them on facebook and ask Kathy where she got them, they kept little Alex very warm and cozy -- he was a February baby. Adorable jackets that are fuzzy inside, and durable outside.

I was aiming for kids in April/May but I couldn't wait either! I mean, there is a slight chance that she won't take this time and I'll have to repeat it! ;) I have young bucks and they are still figuring out what to do. So I'm breeding does whenever they come into heat from now on just in case they don't take the first time. I don't want January to come around and not have all my does bred!
I have the same thing. I'm leaving my does with him is that a good thing to do? We've had him a little bit over a week and haven't seen much. Do you know what to do?
