I have a doe that was supposedly mated with the buck on Dec 6, 2008. I expect that she is pregnant, but she ate alot of hay while being with the buck for 3 weeks until he finally took interest. I can only listen the farmer that says the conception was 12-6-08. My question is, what's next? I have an area to keep her at night, but have not used it yet. It's a 4x8 foot area that she will see the other goats if they are in the shed/barn. It's intended to be used for the first few days with the kid/kids. By the way, we are in SE Michigan, so it's still a bit cold. The mother is 3/4 Boer and 1/4 Alpine. I think that the buck was close to 100% Boer. I will check! When should I start penning her at night? I think that 140 days is around 4-25-09. It looks like her teats may be a little pointed, but no udder has dropped. I feel her sides, and underbody and no babies kicking back. I hope that she is pregnant. Any advice? This is the first time for us and the goat to have a "goat kid". Thanks in advance. Any advice is appreciate.
