    So i checked the ligaments on my 2 pregnant does today and they feel very "squishy" to me. Does that mean they are close? I dont see any discharge and they are so fat. Cant really feel any ribs at all on either of them

    Not necessarily. Ligaments come and go.

    Be sure to have a good vet or very experienced goat owner on call. Overweight does can really struggle with kidding.

    What are their due dates?
