    So my goat, Cody(yep, you guessed it) was bred some time in September- we have no idea when though...Maybe some of you have an idea?

    the last one was at a weird angle- so her udder doesn't show as much as it should.

    thanks!

    Re: when do you think she is due?(pics included!)

    Welcome Cody!

    Going by the month bred, she would be due next month....and going by udder developement as well as the way she looks under her tail, I don't think she settled..sorry :cry:
    A closer pic of her backside may be better to really check...there are quite a few "pooch" experts here that ould help yu out better.

    If she was bred in early September, she would be due in the next week or 2.....most does have more udder developement than Cody does at this late in the pregnancy. The discharge could be her "plug" or sign of heat if she didn't seetle.

    Woud this be her FF? If so, that could explain her udder size, some first timers don't get as large an udder before they deliver.

    If that was her mucous plug you saw, does can lose that anywhere from a month to a few days before they deliver....she is a pretty colored girl, hope you get doeling colored the same....piccies of babies are always in demand :wink:

    Re: when do you think she is due?(pics included!)

    I agree with Liz. A better pic would definitely help though. Which side of the Doe did you think you felt kids moving on?? The reason I ask is because Does carry their kids on their right side... the rumen is on the left so if it was the left that you felt movement on it was probably the rumen. Is it possible she could have been bred on a later date :shrug: Like I said... once you get the better pic up that will help :wink: :greengrin:

    With her udder being better viewed, I'll stick with her kidding in a couple weeks...give or take a few days. She looks deep enough for twins too.

    Now that pic shows the udder's development better... I would say she could be due in a week or two :greengrin: If you happen to get a good pic for a "pooch test" please post it. If you know when she was in with the Buck, then you can calculate when she would be due. She should kid between days 145-155... here is a calculator where you can put in the date she was bred and it will tell you the due date :greengrin: Hope that helps!

    Re: when do you think she is due?(pics included!)

    LOL! we must have posted at the same time... sorry just re-read your post and saw that you don't know when in September she was bred.... so if she was bred in September according to the gestation calculator the EARLIEST she would have been due would have been January 24th (assuming she was bred on or around September 1st) and the LATEST she could be due would be March 4th (assuming she was bred on or around September 30th). If she is bred then I would say she would probably be due sometime from the beginning of Feb.-to the middle of Feb., judging by the udder pic you posted :shrug: but that's just a guess :wink:

    All I can say is welcome to the wonderful world of kidding. If you do not :hair: a bit then I have to say I woudl worry about you.
