    All the babies are doing great, and we have another doe getting pretty close to kidding. Her name's Sky, she's a first-timer, and I'm pretty confident that she only has one in there. I figured she was getting close because, beside the mucous, she had stuff sticking to her tail which seems to happen to our does that are close. 20201230_113358.jpg

    So Sky is probably going to kid tonight or tomorrow because we checked her about 20 minutes ago and she had a bunch of mucous stuck to her tail. The steps outside the door are already starting to get slippery so we're probably going to slip and die while she has her kid lol.

    Good luck with Sky and be careful on the steps! Falling down is no way to start the new year off ;)

    Sky should be having her baby at any moment because of, one, this yellow mucous, two, she didn't want to eat outside, which she always does to get away from the bossy does, and, three, she has absolutely no ligaments. 20210101_091020.jpg

    This is why I keep saying "baby" and not "babies"; she's tiny! I hope she gives us a doeling to start off the new year! 20210101_091100.jpg

    I'm not sure if she could drop any though because we had a doe that just kidded twins (Norma) and her tummy couldn't drop because she doesn't have the size for them to drop. If you compare her belly today to how it looked last week, it has dropped a little bit.

    Poor Sky is just a miserable thing, she waddles to walk and doesn't sent to care about the bossy does anymore. She might end up having twins in her but the poor thing is small and miserable. She's probably about the height of my bigger Nigerian.

    Yes, they are pretty small but our other babies born at the end if December were pretty big when they were born so it's hard to compare. I still think they are small though but a good size for how big their mom was.
