    I've been checking Chloe's ligaments several times per day, they have been super hard and noticeable. Checked them this afternoon and completely gone! She's not showing any other signs but we went ahead and put her up in the kidding stall for the night. Just turned on my video monitor and it's not charging! Hopefully we'll have a Saturday baby! She is currently 143 days.

    I got the monitor charging then went out to tell Chloe we were all ready, so she should hold out until a later more inconvenient time!

    I think she called my bluff. My husband is out there with her and I'm watching on the monitor trying to get human baby to sleep! IMG_20201113_212406783.jpg

    Ohhh congrats! A shame they're all boys, but you can't be mad when they're all that darn cute! Glad all your girls delivered well. You must be so relieved!
    Go Chloe!

    Ok question for ya'll....do some bucks just throw more boys? I was going to give the buck another round, but my husband said it might be better to try a different buck.

    Breeding season can be weird...some years more bucks some years more does. Last year I had exactly half and half ...basically it’s a crap shoot. (at least here)

    That's what I was thinking. He said it seems odd that we were 100% single bucklings but I was thinking it was just random bad luck. I'd love more girls, but honestly we just need good personalities and the number to meet the ag exemption lol!

    The children think he looks like a chipmunk so we are thinking his name will be Chip. He's SOOOO cuddly! I think he's our most cuddly baby so far. Just weighed him and he's 3 lbs 6 oz.
