his doe was bred on a couple of occasions so I don't have an exact date but do know that she should be due in about 6 weeks but she is not very big. She will be a first freshener. Here is a pic of her rear, does she look bred?

Here is her sister who I saw breed and should be due in about 6 weeks too.

And the doe that has about 3-4 weeks to go. Obviously pregnant.

Just really wondering about the first one. She is just probably having a single, but I was just wondering what anyone else thought.

Thanks

I appreciate your opinions. I got the opposite response on Goat Talk, so I guess I will just have to wait and see. I will try to feel of her more this weekend and see if I can feel anything. I felt what I think was a baby head on the black doe and I can feel kicking on the white doe, which there is no question about her. So we will wait and see I guess. I will keep you all updated. Thanks again for trying to help.

Marie, I would have to say I can not tell at all from that picture. For me I need to see her CHA CHA and a good clear picture to tell.
I have does thaa I would not at all say was pregnant if you just looked at her, but her CHA CHA had a different story. Matter of fact if you looked at my doe there is Nno way you would say she was bred but she just had twins. One was not totally formed. So I say get a picture of her and I will see from there.

don't let it fool you

Don't let it fool you if you don't feel anything.

I have a doe who is confirmed prego by ultrasound with twins. She should be due sometime within the next 2-4 weeks. I have been feeling her - she is uddering up nicely, but I can not feel a single baby! There is so much amniotic fluid that if I had not seen the ultrasound, I would have thought that it was a false pregnancy!!!

My doe who delivered 3 weeks ago - I only felt her twins a couple times moving, but could usually feel something like a leg or head -

I think it has a lot to do with how they are carring and amniotic fluid levels.

Just a thought.

I am sorry Marie, I can not see her BUTT. It has to be a good close up of her "Privates"

Re: Pregnant???

That's what I was going to say - if she's a first freshener, then you should be able to tell if she's bred because her udder will start obviously developing. It looks like she's bred to me, and I'll agree with the others: probably a single. Keep us posted!

Re: Pregnant???

Thanks for all your responses. I really think she is bred. I got out there this weekend and got to feel of her better and she definitely has some breast tissue developing there. Not flat like before they are ever bred. And her teats are longer and more developed too. She is definitely having a single, and so is the buckskin. Not sure about the white girl but most likely a single although she is quite a bit larger, but she is closer to kidding too. So I will keep you updated. Thanks so much for your opinions and help. Keep your fingers crossed for easy kiddings for everyone. I wish the same for all of your goaties.

Re: Pregnant???

Thanks. According to my notes, the white one is on day 134 from the first breeding date which is when I saw her breed. The black buckskin is on day 106 from the second breeding date which is when I witnessed her being bred. I never saw the chocolate doe being bred so she could be due either of the first two dates or the third date which would put her another week later. The two that are not as obvious are starting to get a small amount of tissue in the udder area. About a handfull I would say. So hopefully they are both bred. The white doe is getting a nice udder now for a FF. Will update again soon.

Re: Pregnant???

I sure hope so. I am anxious. But I am trying to be patient. Thank goodness it is too cold to just sit out there and wait, huh? I probably would have to take a leave of absence from work, lol. I will let you know if anything changes.

Re: Pregnant???

Here are a few photos I took this weekend. The white doe is coming along nicely. Her day 145 will be Fri. if she bred the first time, if not she has a couple weeks along with the other two. But I think she is getting close. You cant tell from pictures but she is really dropped and is full in there and her tail is to the side.



The black doe has movement in there, I can feel hooves and things moving quite a bit. I took a pic of her tiny udder to show it has a bit of development but not much. So probably has a few weeks.



The brown doe has the same amount of udder (maybe a bit more) do you still think she is open? Maybe she is having a false pregnancy or precocious udder from seeing the others? I just don't know. Let me know what you think.



Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes they all look great! Its hard to be positive but I think the brown one has an udder coming in for sure. Black one was harder to be sure.
