    Hi all I've been learking for a while, gleaning from ya'lls infanate wisdom :lol: I'm coming up on my year anniversery having goats in a month or so and didn't know anything about breeding until My fiend said. Did you know your goats are pregnant :roll: So we kidding one doe sucessfully (well ok she did it and suprised us) and have this other that should have been duethis past week best we can figure. But no baby, Shes huge, has a huge sack and is bulgin in the back end for going on twoo weeks now. I'm starting to get worried that something is wrong. Here are pictures. Thanks in advance for advice. Crystal

    Can you feel the babies moving? If so, it's probably just a waiting game she'll drive you nuts with.

    She looks like she's getting really close, probably just not ready yet. Good luck!

    Ok ya'll its been almost another week. And now she has got really runny poopy. I didn't know if its pregnancy related worms or because shes in the pen instead of out and about. she waddles when she walks she is so big. And she bearly wants to walk. I'm thinking I need to take her to the vet (or have him come out here) I don't want to lose her or the baby(ies) Crystal.

    BTW Welcome, I'm new also, just love this spot and the people are very helpful. I'm sure the more experienced breeders will counsel patience. But, I'm like you, new to this, and I always follow my instincts. If my "little voice" says "call the vet" then I call the vet. But, that said, I'm afraid I treat my goats more like pets then livestock. As soon as you put her in the vehicle to go to the vet, she'll kid in your backseat! LOL

    check her eye lids, are they pale or are they bright pink?

    If they are pale then she is in need of a worming. The stress of pregnancy can cause them to be come susseptible to worms. You can ask you vet what wormers work in your area. I use ivermectin since it seems to still be working here.

    I talked to the dr and he said to worm her and get her temp. If shes not had the baby by friday I'm suppose to call him and talk about induction. Crystal
