I have a doe that seems to be in active labor. She lost her ligaments yesterday and didn't rest/sleep much last night. We went out to check her a few times and I watched her from the camera throughout most of the night. She definitely seems to be having contractions.

She has been having a yellowish clear goo coming out of her since early this morning. She's eating and drinking fine. Her udder is bigger too. She's been pawing her straw and creating nests since last night. How long typically until kids drop?

Thank you guys

She had two bucklings! The first one was at least 9 lbs and in good position. He was a bit stuck though. We pulled in his legs and went in a bit to help the head out. The second one was a little bigger and just flew out. Phew!

She had two and the one was up walking within minutes and the second took about 45 min or so to stand up and start moving around. After two hours they were going to their mama on their own. Amazing.
