we dont have a exact due date but the vet ultrasounded them and said that the brown doe was due around middle of august and the white in sept, but i feel like the white one is looking more pregnant. both does when into labor on the same day at their last kidding and didnt bag up at all til after they kidded. i saw the billy breeding the brown doe right away when they were put together but never actually saw him breed the white one.
White Doe is Flora
Brown Doe is Fauna
what do you guys think?
thanks Heather

Both are very pretty ladies and going by the looks of their pooches, I'd say that they have some time... does that are usually pretty close to delivery will develop a soft relaxed look, as far as udders they both have good starts going , don't be surprised if you do see those udders fill up the day of delivery...goats can be very unpredictable from year to year with how they act before they kid :)

So the last time they were exposed was 152 days ago? No buck in with them at all after that? I know that they are pregnant, but the strange thing is that they seem to have 2-3 weeks to go. :confused:

They are very pretty, and I would be ready for quite a few babies from Fauna... :)

we put the buck in 152 days ago and left him in for a couple months. we lost the whole last bunch of kids we had (they were all born the same night)and the vet said that we should try to be present at the next births, since she wasnt sure if they were stillborn or if there were problems after. im so stressed about missing it. i dont think that i could handle losing every kid again.

I am so sorry that happened, and it definitely gives you the right to be worried :(

Have you looked into getting a barn camera? Or a baby monitor? They might be able to give everyone some space, and you can still watch them with ease.

Since you had stated that the buck was first in the pen with them at 150 plus days ago and left with them for a couple months, he very likely did not catch them in those first days/weeks together but very well could have bred them later leaving you with unknown cover dates as well as possible due dates. I don't think they have but a couple weeks left but depending on when you removed the buck, they could go longer.
A baby moniter that can be used with the base in the barn and the handset with you would be the best option if you live relatively close to their barn... you can usually pick up used ones from thrift shops for a couple bucks.
