How much longer do you all think she has, I think her babies have finally dropped!
It could be hours, if they are working their way into the birthing canal.
It really all depends on what stage she is in.
Does she have a discharge of any kind?
Is her udder tight and huge?
Is she nesting?
Wanting to be alone?
Standing a lot, pushing her head to the wall?
Not eating much?
Her sides were really sunk in, but after she ate they get a little more full. Shes a ff and her udder is full but not tight and shiny. Shes more vocal especially when I leave, she has hay, and shes eaten breakfast so i dont know why shes bleating more. No discharge, her tail is a bit crooked, and she turns her head sideways. she likes to be separated from the herd a few times daily. not sure if shes nesting. as far as eating she prefers sweet feed over the normal pelleted feed.
None of those signs are an indicator of when she will give birth. Just have to keep watching. Good luck!
Just thought i'd ask, just getting antsy, and curious.
Hang in there!
I’ve been watching 3 FFs on my GoatTV... (I’m a FK ‘first kidder’) and I keep thinking it’s going to be soon and then no kids.
Have to resolve myself to the fact that I guess they’ll get here when they are darned good and ready!
She isn't there yet, keep an eye on her, that is all you can do.
Yeah I can almost touch my fingers around her tail head. There is like an inch left. Her vulva was like 1/4 of the way open today. I added a pic.
Looking good! Just keep watching that udder and ligs. Waiting for the udder to get tight and the ligs to go(you will know when they are gone. It feels like absolute mush) In your other thread you said she started her udder January 31st. So there is a very, very high chance she will kid within the next week.
Yup! Im just getting excited, and yup she started then, it hasn't gotten that much bigger though.
Her sides are sunk in, she has a bit of discharge, and she keeps arching her back. she also keeps yawning haha.
Get your catcher's mitt ready!
Did a night check on her tonight, shes really grinding her teeth. She keeps grunting while laying down and flicking her tail. Ligaments are oh so soft.
What color were the drippies? The teeth grinding would concern me a tad. Happy kidding!
Yeah she seems uncomfortable, I think thats why shes doing it. The drippies were amber colored, but it wasn't alot.
So close! I hope you have a simple, smooth kidding tonight!
Thank you! I just got back in from checking on her again. She pawed at the ground a few times, and found a place to lay. She keeps grinding teeth and yawning out of discomfort. I'm not sure if I will be waking up to baby goats or not. Its 12:18 AM here now, so I am off to bed.
She sounds close. Hopefully you will have some cute little kids soon!
I can almost wrap my fingers all the way around her tail head. Her babies are still active. her bags getting bigger. Her ligaments are so soft and squishy.
