    Allow me to introduce..Helga, she is due March 16th. by her second bred date, Feb 15th by the first. Judging by her udder growth I say she's due in march. This will be her 2nd kidding. I am guessing twins with triplets possible and by the smelling the poll test :kidred: :kidred: :stars: but it may be to early for that still.

    Such a sweet face! She looks pretty round to me! By March she's gonna be a big girl. Those little goats though seem to be in a constant state of roundness, preggers or not though. lol ;)

    If their head smells bucky they say your doe will have bucks, if it smells normal she will have doe's. I don't know how this works, but my doe's due both smell bucky. This is my first year kidding so I'll be putting the theory to the test.

    You smell the poll and if it smells Bucky then their going to have at least one buck if not then does... I haven't tried it with mine yet.

    I did the sniff test last year and well it was very acurrate for me. 2 of my does didn't have a smell and kidded with twins and triplet doelings!!! Other 3 smelled bucky and had single buck,twins 1 buck,twins 1 buck. I smelled them a month before kidding.

    Helga looks to have twins in there at this point....and just an FYI, I have a 2nd freshener due 2/15 with an udder that looks the same as Helga's so your girl could still be bred to go sooner than later :wink:

    Re: Helga's Waiting Thread

    Really, in that case I hope she is bred for Feb. it would cut my waiting time in half :greengrin: Though I haven't been able to feel any kids yet........not that I have been trying real hard..... She hates me touching her belly. I'll try again tomorrow.
    I wonder maybe I should give her her CD&T shot now....If shes due march it wouldn't hurt to give it again would it or maybe give the kids it at a few days old?

    Re: Helga's Waiting Thread

    I don't think it would hurt for her to get the CD/T now, and if she doesn't kid for the February due date, you can "booster" her initial dose in 3 weeks.

    Or...what I have done when in the same predicament...knowing that there were 2 breed dates 3 weeks apart, I gave CD/T 2 weeks before the first due date and had the kids covered for both due dates. LOL...Only had that happen once due to a buck escape, kids were fine and I did their normal CD/T at 4 weeks with the 2nd dose at 7 weeks.

    I think I'll wait a week and see how she looks.
    I felt her belly this morning and didn't feel any kids, her belly is really tight:) I also, clipped her udder a little to get a better look. She does have a fair amount of udder growth, size of a baseball maybe. I 'll post a picture tomorrow.

    Re: Helga's Waiting Thread

    Here are some udder shots. She looks like she has a little to much udder growth for march. I guess the only thing that makes me feel she is due march is that I have not been able to feel the kids moving yet, I usually can feel kid(s) pretty well a month before kidding. Also, she acted like she was in heat, in oct. let the buck mount her several time and flirted with him alot. Where as in sept. I don't even remember that breeding really. I can't remember if he mounted her or if I just pennd them together for a day because she showed signs of heat. :scratch: Well I guess I'll find out in few more weeks. :greengrin: So today is day 106 y or 129.

    So did she kid by the first or second bred date?

    Re: Helga's Waiting Thread Udder Pictures

    She does have a good bit of udder there! Was her FF udder large or small? I ask because my doe Bailey had a single and her udder was smallish as a FF...this time she's filling and about the same size as Helga.

    It was Binkey who had the 2 breed dates 3 years ago and ended up kidding with the 2nd due date.

    Re: Helga's Waiting Thread Udder Pictures

    Her udder as a FF was a good size. She doesn't have very good attachments though, so that may make her udder look bigger :shrug:

    This picture was taken a few days before kidding.

    Re: Helga's Waiting Thread Udder Pictures

    It does appear that she has some room to fill. If she does go beyond 155 days with that first breed date then you'll know for sure she'll be due with the 2nd date.

    The time will fly....so you won't be completely pulling your hair out waiting for her kids :hug:

    Re: Helga's Waiting Thread I can feel the kid(s)!!

    I have a second freshener due March 9-whose udder is about that size-so maybe she can go until March! Who knows. I have a few does who I don't know their exact due date-it drives me NUTS! Good luck, and can't wait to see pics of the kids!

    Maybe....FF usually start their udders earlier though. I figure if her udder doesn't grow a whole lot in this week then her due date will probably be in march.

    No matter how many times my girls give me kids...feeling those unseen babies moving is a miraculous moment for me.
