Hi! Newbie goat lover here!! I have 3 does that we predict are due to kid in about 6 weeks (didn't mean for them all to kid around the same time but I've heard that's how it works in the goat world!). 2 are first timers. One of the first timers has been acting "off" this week. Earlier this week she would smell her pee and then curl up her lip. I've googled and gotten mixed reviews on what that could mean. Last night she was really talkative, but continued to eat. This morning she was EXTREMELY talkative and stayed on our heels as we were walking around. She had a brownish discharge come out (I will attach a picture), then after that all the discharge has been more clear. It is pretty liquid-y, not thick/sticky. She is crying a lot, but other than that acting normal. For a while she would not eat, but she is back eating again. She does not look dilated or puffy, has 0 milk production (she's a Nigerian so I would think she should have a lot). Worried that this could be a miscarriage? Or possible signs of labor? Any experienced people out there know what's happening?!
