Quite a few of our does wag their tail real fast off and on, around a few days before kidding right up until that day. I also have some that don't, but I have noticed, if your doe doesn't wag her tail to much and wags it quite a bit and is acting a bit "off", she is probably close. This is going to depend on the doe though, wagging may be acompannied by pawing, or frequently laying down...etc. It's going to depend on the doe mostly!!
