I have a 13-month old Nigerian Dwarf, and I want to breed her. Right now she lives with another female. My breeder is willing to let me stud my girl to one of her boys. However, I'm kerflumuxed about how to tell when she's in heat. My breeder said that there's a 3-day window every three weeks, where she'll switch her tail more (ok, I can watch for that), talk more (she talks ALL the time), and mount other goats (she mounts the other female ALL the time). Any other suggestions? I read a (fictional) book once in which the female goats would go into heat as soon as they were around a male (if they hadn't previously been pastured with a male), but apparently that's a load of hooey?
