I believe 160 days is safe. How do you know her due date? Is it possible she had a 5 day heat and was bred a week later than you thought?
We literally saw her in heat let her out with the buck saw him breed her and she ran back to her stall and wanted nothing to do with him after that 🤣 and she wasn’t with him after that since we saw her get bredI believe 160 days is safe. How do you know her due date? Is it possible she had a 5 day heat and was bred a week later than you thought?
100% positive she was with the buck one day we saw her get bred and she wanted nothing to do with him after that breeding 😂How sure are you on her due date? How many days was she with the buck?
Watch for discharge and a shiny udder. If she's not acting sick or like somethings wrong you'll just have to wait 😂 which I know is the hardest thing lol
7 days late is in normal range? When is it not normal?Well I wouldn't be real worried yet. She may just be carrying one. She's still in normal range and it sounds like she's starting to get pretty uncomfortable. Hopefully you have a kid soon!
Ok so we have a few days that’s a relief I think I will be able to sleep knowing that 🤣Past 160 days so 10 days late.
Yes I may do that, I will call Monday if she hasn’t kidded. Praying she does before thenI'd consider having a vet check her out if she has not kidded by day 159.
Haha I’m so happy we are not alone in this!! Please keep me updated with yours and I’ll keep you updated on mine ☺I am seriously going through the exact same thing! I have a doe that was "bred" on Sept 29. She is like 164 days. We had an ultrasound done last Monday when she was 159 days. Kid was alive and kicking. The vet feels that we may be off a week and is really 157 days right now. He thought the kid didn't look too big on the ultrasound. He felt we had time.
Her udder is not getting bigger really and ligaments are slightly squishy, very slightly.
I hope your doe goes soon!!! Let's see who reaches the finish line first
We definitely feel the baby and felt it kick yesterday, I would say her legs definitely has gotten posty for sure, I did notice a little more discharge on her today so hopefully this means we are close, she is definitely not following the rules and this is so typical for her 😂Can you feel the kid on her right side? Or, right in front of her udder? Have the back legs gotten "posty"? They get
pretty straight right before labor- ligaments aren't always the best indicators, sometimes they don't fill the udder to
shiny- as with all things goat, for every rule, there is a goat that will not follow them!
Ahh I can do relate!! Literally the same here!! Her bag is filling up and getting tighter but no labor yet. I did notice she started losing her mucus plug these past two days but not the stream you see in labor 🙄 what kind of goat do you have?My doe is still pregnant! UGH!
She did make some kind of nest in the straw. That's it. Udder is about the same and ligaments still there. I'm looking forward to some extra milk too!
How is your doe doing?
Thank you so much!! Good to hear I’m not alone. How’s yours doing? Nothing on my end 🙄Esimon- I have one doing the same as yours- Naturally, this is a very important breeding- she read the doe code and is following it to a T! Best wishes for a
good kidding to you!
She's a registered Nubian What type of goat is yours?Ahh I can do relate!! Literally the same here!! Her bag is filling up and getting tighter but no labor yet. I did notice she started losing her mucus plug these past two days but not the stream you see in labor 🙄 what kind of goat do you have?
