The gestational period is an average. 145 is average for Nigies and 150 days for standard breeds..but first time moms can go longer and genetics play a role. We put due date at the earliest time frame and watch close from there. I have a FF nigie on day 146 and doesn't look quite ready..but boy we are watching her close.

Thank you for the info. When do they start to get a bigger udder? I have heard a week before kidding?

Is it her first time kidding? Usually they start building their udder about a month beforehand. However, some more experienced does can blow up right before or during kidding.
