Oops. I meant the 2/28 and 3/7. There is a change that it didn't take and that she was bred again later. Not likely but can't be ruled out, however it is starting to look more that way every passing day.When was the very last day that she was housed with a buck? Udder filling up at all? And yes, pictures would help.
It is impossible for two does to come into heat on 2/31/13 and then on 3/7/13. First of all, they would both have had to come into a 5 day heat (in their case 7 day heat). Second, there is no 2/31- February only has 28 days.
If her belly is dropping, she is getting ready and it shouldn't be long - probably less than a week if my girls are any guide. Personally, I would never lute to induce labor unless there was a much better reason than a doe being overdue. This is exactly why I don't worry about due dates. Does will kid when THEY are darned good and ready, in my honest opinion, and they don't give a flip about our schedules.Still no kids. Doe is acting normal. Her belly is starting to drop but I really starting to get nervous now. She and the other older paint doe that I bought with her, were bred on the same days. 2/31/13 and then again on 3/7/13. Old Paint doe had triplets on 7/29/13 like clockwork.
So I would put her at 12 days over due!! This is the best doe I have and I don't want to lose her. Should I get some Lute from the vet?
Ha! I used to try to watch grass grow when I was a kid. Not nearly as suspenseful as watching a full term doe!You know, now that you mention it, I've never watched paint dry either. :laugh:
