My doe "Dixie" is getting very close to kidding. She will be 145 days on April 7th. From what I've been reading, the gestation for a Dwarf Nigerian is 145 days, although they can go up to 157 days. Am I on the right track here? I am new to goats and this is my first kidding season. Needless to say, I'm very excited and very nervous. This is the second kidding for Dixie. I didn't own her when she kidded the first time, but I do know that she had four kids.
