    I have four little doelings all of which are going to have their first birthday this week. They were all accidentally bred by our prolific saanen buck. :GAAH: I worked really hard to keep them separate but regardless . . . I'm almost positive that they are prego. I have no idea how or when. How can I tell that these babies are going to have babies? The only thing I noticed is that they are beginning to get tiny bags . . . some are only filling up on one side. Also, how can I tell how far along they are? All my other does I made sure that I recorded the exact date of breeding and I isolated them 3 days before they were due, etc. I would love to be there for all of these girls to kid, especially since they are so young.

    Sorry, I tried to post pictures, but I'm still not having any success . . . it always tells me that they are too big. :hair:

    Thanks, all!

    If they're starting to fill in the udder.. I'd say ..probably 1 month to go.....or less....
    If that is the case... giving them CD&T tetnus toxoid.... would be a good time... to give it .... :wink:

    On the pics.... go to Photobucket or you can e-mail me... the pics... and I can try to post them for you..... :wink: :greengrin:

    pictures need to be 430X430 pix to post

    filling only one side is a sign of a precocious milker (no pregnant milker)

    :p precocious milker . . . is that a real term or an awesome made-up one?

    I guess it's time to break down and set up a photobucket account :coffee2:

    WELLLLLL, Do we really need to explain HOW it happened? :ROFL: :ROFL:

    Hey don't worry, I had four does that "I had no idea how or when it happened either" They were all over a year when they kidded and they did just fine. One even had triplets and nursed them all with out any trouble.

    If you have a Photo bucket account, go to the resize tab and resize them to the Med size. (that is what I do).

    LOL! :ROFL: I do have the basics of the how covered :wink: but profound acrobatics would have to be in order for him to get close enough to breed these girls (*contemplates the buck vaulting over a 6-foot fence, flipping/twisting 7 or 8 times, and landing in a similar pose to that of Olympic gymnasts*) . . . it must have been an interesting sight :shocked:

    that's the coolest thing ever. :shades: i want to use that term as much as possible, lol :p . . . is it synonymous with a "one-sided" udder?

    No, precocious means something that is developing ahead of schedule, in this case, it's an "early" udder ;)

    I used it in exactly that meaning -- she they could be developing udders ahead of when they should be (ie being bred) but they could be pregnant too. I just know that for precocious milkers (ones not bred) they can easily have lopsided udders but not always

    So . . . according to the guy who does the ultrasounds . . . NONE of them are pregnant :scratch: . . . all 4 of them have "precocious udders." Is that even possible? Only 2 of them have what I would call one-sided udders and the other two have equally filled-out bags. One of them is even filled out in the tummy! He says that sometimes it's just a hormonal thing, but that it happening in 4 goats is really unusual . . . whaaaaaaat is happening? lol :help:

    If you don't believe the ultrasounds, then you can send blood samples to biotracking for pregnancy diagnosis.

    Also, are your babies related? It's fairly common for doelings from high producing lines to develope precocious udders if they aren't bred. It can also run in family lines.

    It really isn't a big deal, they are more common that most people think, largely b/c they don't require any real care, there is no "treatment" for them, and so most people don't go to their vet or whatnot.

    If they get too large/uncomfortable/milk leaking, you can milk them like you would any doe that has freshened.

    It's not unheard of for even bucks from high producing lines to make milk. And you KNOW they're not pregnant LOL

    None of the does are sisters, but 2 may be related three or four generations past (the same great-grandma or something).

    I'm assuming right now that 2 of the 4 are pregnant and they can prove me wrong themselves. :roll: When I get a break I will try to post some pictures on here.

    Btw: the one doeling that I was sure is pregnant (although the ultrasound showed nothing) . . . her mom had a cloudburst pregnancy this year. :shrug:
