    First let me explain a little. I have a small breeding herd of about 30 goats. I have a nubian buck then several nubian and nubian cross does, then a few la mancha does. Most of the goats are rescues from auctions, or goats people didnt want anymore, or couldnt take care of. But I find them a beautiful group of misfits. To pay for hay we do a bit of breeding because we enjoy it and plan to milk them someday soon. Ive had a few kids so far but this will be the first year things really take off he expect between 10-14 kids this year. Well our first doe is on 138 days and Im getting so excited!!! She is one of my favorite does, and one of my best looking. I am going crazy waiting. I dont have pregnant pics of her but will add them soon. Had to share this all with you guys since I keep reading everyone elses threads. The doe has a huge full udder, and this is her first kids. Heres mom and dad... again the doe is not pregnant this is an old pic. Pics a bit old of the buck but you get the idea.

    Nice looking goats! You should have very colorful kids! Love that. Do you have a baby monitor? Good luck, hoping for easy birthing and healthy kids! :clap:

    She is certainly filling that udder! Won't be long before it has doubled or even tripled in size!

    Thank you. Most of them are rescues. But we are going for nicely painted Nubians and La Manchas. The brown and white in one pic that you cant see her face is a La Mancha.

    No dont have a monitor. Ive read about people having them. Do you have to get one of the expensive ones with the real monitor? I might just have a cheap one that worked from my daughter.

    Thank you. I wish I could help more of them, but with money being tight Hubby is puting some preasure about them needing to put back into the feed bill. Im hoping I can rehome the kids and put some money back into it and help more. My neighbor has a couple Nubian does he plans to send to meat. I so wish I could help them. But he wanted $125 each.

    They just had three new kids there. All very gorgeous. I was sad cause they wanna send em to meat. He said hed trade breedings to my Nubian buck. But I just dont wanna have any of my bucks breedings go to that kind of home. They have other animals that they do not so much take good care of... but not gonna get into that.

    I havent seen any discharge at all, and usually in the past though Im not that experienced I saw goo first before the contractions were noticed. But im watching her. [but trying not to watch to much] Shes on day 145. So it should be soon. I have owned this doe for 2 yrs and shes been hard to get to settle. I love this doe. So I really hope i get a doe from her. I wish two does lol. But shes a first timer so probably not. But I can dream!!
