    her poo was fully formed when she first arrived here about 3 weeks ago. Now her poo is clumpy and soft but still formed. Her lids and gums are bright pink. She is still eating like normal. Weather is a bit wet but she has been doing this for a couple of days. There was no change in her diet. What could this be? It is lighter in color than when she first arrived. I was told that the doe's po will change as they near kidding and found that true with one doe but never paid any mind to the 2nd do that kidded. I was just wondering why her poo is like that.

    yes, it is sheba. I saw her poo earlier and it seemed to be back to normal. I am locking her up at night but she is out all day with the others. She eats by herslef now so I know she is getting what she needs and so the others are getting more.

    Could it maybe have something with you moving her? Because she has come into a different environment? Even if you are feeding the same, I'm sure the stress of moving would have done that.

    it could be but why would it just now be showing up? She is back to normal so I think it was the damp weather.

    That could be, weather changes do count as stress.
