    I know the feeling, our first doe this year was 3-4 days overdue!

    We have 2 due on 2/25 and another due that week, and I sure hope they don't keep me waiting! I know I will pull my hair out! Of course they'll all plan to kid at the same time and I am not sure what would be worse LOL

    Yes! Relax, go out to lunch or better yet, plan a big whoopty-do party for friends or family held at someone else place.
    We who have not kidded yet feel your pain. The only thing that hurries kidding is to be doing something else. :laugh:

    I know how you feel I have a 1st freshener that was coming along with her udder and such, then just kind of stalled.

    I found that getting involved with other stuff really helps time go faster.. I agree with everyone else on that.

    Just remember you are not alone.... :laugh:

    Oh yeah...I've got a doe who's been due "any time" since October. It's now February, there's no way she was bred in September at ALL, and yet she hasn't kidded, and signs still point to being weeks away. I know for a fact she wasn't bred by my buck, her old owner swears up and down she wasn't bred in September, nobody knows when she's due, who she's bred by, if I should induce her, if I should wait and see, or if she'll be the first goat to hold onto kids forever.
