    I have a doe who is due on the 12th, that will be her 145, well she is on mild labor and I know she will kid tomarrow, I have had this doe for 4 kiddings and I know what she does every single time. Are these babies going to be developed enough? like their lung development? I am so worried, anything I can do??? thanks

    Day 142 will be fine don't worry. I had a doe kid 142 days from the time I bought my buck and put him with the does. I wasnt ready but she was and the kid was fine. The norm is 145 and as long as they are not more than 10 days early the outlook is great.

    They should be fine. The more there are the weaker or more behind they may seem but they should be fine.

    They say 141 is the mark for having healthy babies vs preemie babies, so she should be ok :)

    Ok well she hasent kidded yet.... thats ok, I can wait I would rather wait an have nice strong babies than kid early and have weak or possibly dead babies. I have been checking on her and she dosent seem to be doing anything now so I think we have a few more days to go. whew, I thought we were going to have problems, made me worry
