I have HAD IT. So of course, it started storming. Like really storming. Her roof busted a HUGE leak and she was soaked, screaming and in labor. Yeah. Of course!
So I have this area for my grow out meat rabbits out my back door. It's an old macaw aviary that I brought from Alaska.
So I cornered off the young buns, cleaned it out (in the storm and dark of course) hauled straw and hay through a dark orchard with nothing but a freaking flashlight, put down fresh bedding, walked a screaming and wet goatie to the macaw aviary and here she is now. She complained about the change in location, but snuggled right into the fresh dry bedding and calmed down. Best part is now I can see her from my back door! Which is off my living room. =)
When she has contractions, you'll see all her muscles tense up, especially in her lower back area. I have been dubbed the 'Goat Midwife' by my family, because when my does are pushing, I let them push on my hands to get better 'traction', since our current kidding stalls have a cement floor. (Obviously we put straw on top, lol)
Has she had any amber lookin' goo? When my doe kidded this year, she had a TON of goo that was a light brown color.. Kids were soon after.
On and off all day. She stops for a while, then starts up again. Her ligs went a few days ago, then came back, then went away this morning again. I felt her abdomen and the baby feels like it's in proper position. She doesn't seem to stressed out.
She had her kids about two hours AFTER I went to bed. I woke up at like 1130pm in a benedryl induced haze to my husband shaking me "I think she had her babies". So I stumbled out there and yup! 1 boy that is a tri color and a black and tan girl.
I'll post more photos in the birth annouc section!
