    Good luck and happy kidding!
    You’ll do great, just make a checklist while you’re waiting and it’ll be all good.

    I missed it! My husband had a break in work conference calls so he went out to check and baby was already coming out! She isn't too interested yet and wasn't cleaning him. She was moving when he tried to nurse so I loosely tied her and now that he's nursing she's sniffing him more and starting to lick him.

    I think she's done. She hasn't shown anymore signs and I bumped her and didn't feel anything.

    Is the afterbirth still hanging or not showing?

    Awww! He’s adorable! Congratulations, he’s a mini Nubian so there are probably folks who will want him if your thinking about not keeping him.
    Keep at mom, sometimes they need to be taught mothering skills...
    You’re doing awesome :)

    I am pretty sure I've convinced my husband we need to keep him. We can breed him to our other two full-sized goats. He's just so beautiful and sweet I don't know that I could give him up! I think I've convinced him we need to keep both boys and he thinks my craziness has peaked (it hasn't).
