    So guys I have only had goats for about a year and my doe Jane is pregnant. She started bagging up 3 days ago so I moved her to a kidding stall. She is normally very flighty she was damn raised and could care less if I existed unlike my other two but tonight she has hollowed out and comes over as I'm sitting in her stall and starts licking me. She's never done this before. She also is rubbing her head and pushing it into the stall wall something she has never done. Along with biting at her sides. I was wondering if you guys might think she is close to labor her cochie has opened up some and she has had a little discharge. She is now tearing up the feed pan like never before. Should I keep watch tonight or do you guys think she's just beig weird?
