So my doe was bred Sept 24 and I know she can pop pretty much any day now but she really hasnt eaten much at all the last couple of days. She didn't eat her grain tonight either. I know this can happen but I'm starting to get worried a little.

Check her for ketosis asap. You can get ketone strips at any pharmacy. Is she drinking well and still eating her hay? She still has about 10 days to go, so I would also start on magic, or nutridrench etc. to get her eating through the last part of her pregnancy.

If you have Molasses, Karo, or Corn syrup on hand, get 20mL in her right away, worry about the recipe later. Offer whatever she will eat - an evergreen bough? Super, a slice of bread? Let her have it, a handful of cracked corn? We'll take it. All within reason as you don't want scouring or enterotoxemia.
