    Hi new to the board and kinda new to goats.I have had my 3 NDG'S for over a year now they are 15 mons old.I bought a nice billy IMHO.My ? is how do you tell if the billy has done the dirty deed with your goat.This is what happened the billy (steel) mounted my doe (keas) she let him mount and then kinda dropped her hips to the ground like squating to pee did he do it right? if she breed it will be the middle of June before she kids.


    Any info will help me out as this is her frist time and mine too.


    Mindy

    First off, welcome! :wave: It's nice to have you here! I also raise Nigerian Dwarf goats. :)

    It does sound like he "did the deed." A doe will kind of "hunch" after a successful breeding, sounds like she did just that.

    welcome :wave:

    you will also find that the buck will wilt ..kinda fling his head back and upward in the air as he wilts and slides off of her....the doe will hunch up and then pee.

    yes...if she is bred now and takes..then it will be June... when she kids...
    test her 18 days later up to her 24th day after her date with the buck...to be sure she doesn't come in season ...if she doesn't ...She should be preggo....if she is in season the buck can go for round 2 :)
    It is very normal ....for the discharge after the deed.... :wink:

    By test they mean to take her to the buck or the buck to her. A typical cycle is 18-24 days. So if she starts flagging her tail and standing for him then you know that she didn't take for the first round.

    I have the billy in with them now and she was the only one to let him mount the other 2 does ran from him but now they will let him come close but nothing more..I can look out my window and watch what they are doing.I really just want to sit outside with them but it is to cold for me and they are calling for the first snow of the season here (2to4)inches...O joy

    when those does are in heat they will get over their shyness QUICKLY! I had a doe running scared from the buck on day and the next rubbing all over him flagging and peeing for him :roll:

    Re: Got a breeding ?

    Watch out for the "5 day heat"...we have a thread on here somewhere...she may come back in heat in 5 days. You'd want to breed her again and adjust your "birthing date". Have you been present at any other births? (like dogs, etc)? When I was a newbie, I freaked out a little and decided I needed an experienced doe to kid first, you know, give me a little experience first...so I bought an older doe...already bred...should have been the first to kid...and then 3 of my "maidens" kidded first! I didn't realize, at the time, that it was actually the "addiction" taking over! LOL

    Re: Got a breeding ?

    When you run the buck with the does you won't always know the due date. So if you happen to see him showing a lot of interest in a doe or breeding one, mark your calendar. I don't pen breed my does since I have more than one buck and I am specific who breeds who. Easier to keep up with and easier to know when to expect babies.

    Definitely sounds like he did the deed with that doe. What lines are your does out of?

    Re: Got a breeding ?

    Well being new to goats not sure about the does line I am waiting on that info from AGA but I do have the billys lines got them to day from Janet.As for the first part I am hoping to have them all breed this month but that is up to them... I keep looking out the windows like I'm a peeping tom.He has calmed the girls down a lot they really do not yell for me as much as they did before he came home.

    Sthil was nice looking when I saw him months ago at Janet's. I don't recall who his dam was offhand. Hopefully he can improve your does. And he is blue-eyed so that's always a plus.

    Re: Got a breeding ?

    He is such a gent when he got here and has already done 1 of my does (my crazy doe) I am kinda worryed about it because she will not let you touch her and I am starting to think that my other 2 girls are not going to give me any hint of when they go in to heat..so I just have to wait and see what they look like next month.I was thinking about every week about going out and taking pics of them just to compare to the week before.

    I didn't read all the replies...
    Make sure you mark this breeding on the calendar so you can keep track of the due date and when her next heat cycle should be. :greengrin:
