This is my first time owning goats, we bought boots and she was already prego. I am thinking she may be ready to birth soon but she is not really people friendly and I can't really tell. I have read all about it but thought it couldn't hurt to ask!! We have moved her away from the billy and into a spot a bit warmer. I don't want to spend the entire night checking on her if it is unnecessary. She is chewing, not really grinding her teeth but more like a soft chewing. And she was acting distant from the others and they were all picking on her - not letting her eat, chasing her away - which is why I decided to move her over today. I an see her belly moving, I would love to touch but she won't allow it, Any ideas of how to tell when she is ready without touching her, since that is a fight and I don't want to stress her out.
