So Mamma Nacho is due today. I put her into the kidding pen.

Which is a dog run, on a cement slab.

It's been two days now. She WON'T pee or poop in the kennel. I keep going out there and taking her to the toilet and as soon as I take her out she pees and poops.

So do I have to worry about her holding it? She's a feral goat. So she's not used to concrete maybe?

I worry about her holding it. And causing her a bladder issue. I've never met a goat that "holds it" before.

How often are you walking her?

Peggy Sue "holds it" while she's living inside. As long as I take her to pee every couple hours she is fine. She usually doesn't pee overnight, though she does poop a little. She was fine while she was pregnant.

How about throwing some dirt and leaf litter in the kennel to simulate the yard? It can be easily swept out when she kids.
