    The girls bellies are all gurgling. I did change hay 3 weeks ago, but thats it all I've done different. Is this normal?

    Gurgles on the left is a good sign of a healthy rumen, try offering some baking soda or even give them a TUMS tablet, added calcium and it helps with gas.

    you want noises -- that means the rumen is working
