    Thank your everyone for the kind words! Everyone is doing great, after licorice lost her babies I ended up moving her over with last years doe kids so she could get a little extra attention and she is doing very well.
    Here are my does due next month!
    Dottie (Saanen) is due in two weeks and has a beautiful little udder growing. She is a FF.
    The next 3 are all due at Christmas.
    Hazel is next, honestly I’m unsure if she is still bred, she doesn’t have much of a belly maybe a little bit of an udder. She only had a single last year so if still bred I’m guessing just a single again.
    Gemma is very pregnant! She is way bigger than she looks in the pics and she is a lot bigger than she was last year. She had a single last year so I’m hoping for twins this year!
    Stormy is growing great starting to make a cute little udder and getting a belly. Maybe twins for her (fingers crossed) 5C76AB81-0894-4F42-9C81-B00CB162AA2F.jpeg A19FD8E4-4F2B-4D2D-9B20-C2D17FCAD945.jpeg 58ED5E80-7B74-47EA-8F85-93B32635AB2B.jpeg AC7C6624-D7F0-4FB0-80E7-68B005F83C6F.jpeg

    Just my first wave a bred ladies!
    Gemma is first, if I didn’t know better I would guess she is a lot closer than a month to go! B1514D12-C6A3-4957-B02C-94B2806F79E0.jpeg

    Dottie due next week, she has definitely changed! 68ADE485-280B-4EA8-B101-63AFB0F0E069.jpeg
    Hazel, I think she is starting to grow an udder so I’m thinking and hoping she is still bred!

    Thanks everyone!! We’re getting very excited! My husband and I FINALLY got the kidding pens set up. I was a littler nervous with Dottie being due this week and both my husband and I working, but life has a weird way of working out. Now we’re all at home quarantined because I have covid! Ugh! I feel ok, kind of like a bad head cold, no taste or smell and a horrible headache! Now I just wait for Dottie to kid!

    Very nice kidding pens. Take care of yourself. Sending prayers for your healing. It helps to sleep on your stomach, if you can.

    I hope you feel better soon!:getwell:

    Those are nice kidding pens! Would you be able to tell me what the dimensions are? (I've been doing some brainstorming for my own)

    so these are 5x5 dog kennels. We looking into getting some kidding pens custom made but it was going to cost me more then double of what I got these for. I’m not sure how they’ll hold up this is my first year using them. But I got 4 pens with all the connectors for $350. But they have plenty of room, this is Gemma she’s my biggest girl, not sure what she weights but she huge, and has lots of room to spare.

    We have babies!!!
    Dottie gave me 3 beautiful doe kids! She had 4 babies in her but the buck kid was DOA and had been gone for awhile. The two bigger doe kids are 6.5 and 7 pounds and little Pip has already made her way into the house, she is only 3 pounds! All seem to be doing well so far, I haven’t helped them nurse, I’m giving Dottie a little space to figure out what these things are lol
