It's getting close! My first doe is due the 11th. The next is the 23rd and the last is the 30th. This will be my first kidding and I'm hoping it goes without a hitch. Here's the first to go. I apologize for the horrible pictures lol. Also how many do you think she has in there? Twins or a big single?

Well she fooled me and went this morning at 11am. She had NO signs of giving birth at all. I saw her throughout the day and I happened to look in and see her pushing out a baby! The first was a doe. She was a little stuck so I pushed one of her feet back in and she came right out. Then 5min went by and she started pushing again. She birthed the buckling in 45 seconds.
The buck is the brown and white one and the little girl is the black and white.

So momma had a bit of a congested udder and did not have much milk at first. I massaged it for a while with a warm washcloth and milked our a little from each side. Then the babies started eating and her udder feels and looks fine. Was that the right thing to do? Will it be okay? Everyone seems content.
