    I tansported a doe that was due anyday, she kidded at my place 3 days later - it isn't recomend that you do it that way though.

    I would say that if she is 4 months along I would wait but anything before that should be ok.

    I really have no experience with this except what I told you above

    From my experience, 3 months is the limit if it is a long ride. After that you have to be careful.

    I would say no later than 4 months and even before that after 3 you need to be careful.

    Ok,I was looking around,and saw I doe I liked,but she's not due until the last week of March. I think it would be a 4-5 hr drive,but not sure.

    It would be ok to transport her now, probably after mid january it wouldn't be a good idea to transport her.
