    So, I'm looking at my kidding schedule and boy am I going to kid out a lot of does compared to last year. Got me to wondering how many everyone else is going to kid out. :D

    I am hoping my two alpines will kid on April (may at the latest if this breeding took) and then I plan on breeding my other two does if I can find a suitable buck for what I want (which I haven't actually decided whether I wanna go with milk or meat with those two yet...)

    I only hope that more live than I have had so far. I feel like a lousy goat farmer, since I have had three die (that is including the premature twins) since getting goats last May. :(

    It sure does...this will be her 3rd with me and her record so far has been 4 does and 1 buck.....her FF was with 1 doe and 1 buck with her previous owner. Chief is sire of these kids and since he sired 8 kids this year with 4 does...2 of those kids were bucks, lets hope that he and Binkey give me girls in March :wink:

    Mine's rough--between 6-10 or more. I have two right now that I am not sure of; I thought they had settled, but I am worried that they miscarried. No udder development so far but no heats either! We'll see when the due date rolls around. Could just be singles. And I have several younger does that will be bred later in the year for autumn babies. :)

    Mine won't be kidding, but I'd love to have them bred by this coming winter :) So, just 2.

    Liz, what's Teddy x Angel's male/female ratio record? I'm hoping they produce a buckling, I'd love to have one :love:

    I just have 2 this year that is hopefully all we need to get 4 kids for my nieces to show in the fair. Maybe I will think about getting one more for next years kids just so I have some extra to choose from or if I have a doe or 2 that decide to just have one kid.
