My do kidded a single buckling a week ago today. I just went out to feed them and her tail and vulva are all bloody. She hasn't had any bleeding or discharge since the day after kidding. Should I be concerned or could she be in heat?

She's just cleaning out. She will bleed off and on for up to 6 weeks. The blood should slowly start turning yellow and then white during that time.

I've had some that do that, it's fine. I would be more worried if she never did start shedding the uterine lining, that would mean an infection or something very strange.

Mine all do it. Some start the next day and some wait up to a week. It may go on for 6 or more weeks. I just keep their butts clean if flies are an issue. A tablespoon of blood smeared all over the backside looks like a quart. No worries.
