    I think one of my doelings is in heat. How many days is it,and then how long until the next one? I was thinking around 3 days and then 18 but not sure. :?

    It really depends on the doe...each of my 5 vary from 16-23 days and the "standing heat" usually only lasts with mine from 12 hours to 2 days. I have minis so I guess it would be the same for bigger does too. :greengrin:

    a heat can last a week but standing heat is for up to 24 hours.

    I have had goats go into heat every 17 days and ones that go every 21 days (and inbetween that) so that is your gage
