I was just curious what the earliest was anyone has experienced with a doe who gave birth before her due date. And how early is too early, in your experience, for the kids to be alright. I ask because one of my new does is bagging up, and the breeder swears she isn't due until mid to late June. She swears she put her in with the buck in mid/late January. I really doubt she will go that long based on her udder progression. I'd give her a month at the most. That would put them at a month premature. Of course, the lady could be wrong and not really remember correctly...which would make me slightly happier as I wouldn't be worried about premature babies. Of course she also finally told me that both girls were in until March. SO, the one who was put in December who she said was due in May could have gotten bred in January or March...so could be due as late as freaking August. *Sigh*. I don't like it when people aren't more accurate.
