    This one doe has an extremely sticky tail and we can't tell if it's from discharge or her leaking pee she's 9 days away from her due date any clue or advice?

    Can't say for sure. Could be either. I'd wash it up and keep an eye on her.

    She's leaking pee whenever she's laying down so we think babies are laying on her bladder

    I think those babies need a stern talking too. Its embarrasing for a momma to leak pee when lying.... :)

    Yeah strange thing is its only happening to her and all the other girls have multiples while she looks like she's having a single so maybe babies moving into position?

    Kids take up a lot of room and press on other organs. No guarantee which organs they tend to squeeze out.

    Yeah we hope she doesn't have a big baby she's not that big of a doe and we really have no information to how many times she's kidded before she's about 3 but has kidded at least once all these does we bought pregnant with nothing except that they all had their shots and have kidded before

    Some does know how to shift kids to move them off organs.

    The kids may also move, so the kid pushing on her bladder may subside.

    Poor girl.

    If you are concerned about her delivery, do you have a vet on call?
    Vets are expensive but it's always good to have one available for those terrible "just in case" emergencies that never occur between 8-4 Mon-Fri!

    No vets around my area are only just starting to do stuff for goats but we do have an experienced goat farmer with 110 goats and hour away she's a really good friend of ours so I'm sure she could help us out with her
