Oh yes, Beulah is already in a kidding pen we built three weeks ago. She had a heating lamp and fresh everything. I have a kit all set to go when she starts active labor. I'm pacing the floors now without reason lol it still could be days. Time will tell. The doe code thing is cute and so true! I've been afraid to leave for too long because I just know she'll kid as soon as I leave lolHave you got your kidding supplies ready yet? Sounds like it shouldn't be many more days, or a week. Have you got a birthing stall ready? A partial kidding kit list would be: iodine and a small medicine bottle for dipping the cords, towels for drying off the newborns, a bulb syringe in case you need to help clear the airway, a heating lamp for the newborns to get under for warmth if it's cold weather, an old blanket to lay down to cover the wetness from the birthing fluids to keep yourself dry, selenium & vitamin E gel for the newborns, a thermometer, and a phone and the number of the vet and/or someone experienced in birthing in case there are problems. There are more things that could be added to the kidding kit (a prepacked tote with a lid), as I've seen lists longer than what has been mentioned.
There is this thing called the Doe Code. You may be told about it by some of the other members. It's all in fun, not really anything to be concerned over. Just observations about pregnant does and their individual approaches to the birthing process expressed in a joking way.
