Shamrock is due today (was possibly due yesterday), and I can tell she wants them out. She has to try to adjust the babies and pee leaning to the side. Pictures are from yesterday. I feel body parts moving around in there. Sometimes you can see them kick. There isn't much change today so far. No goop yet. Udder is tight, but I bet it could grow more. Her sister, orange and white, I am concerned is NOT pregnant. She is about 10-12 days from kidding. Her vulva looks like it did months ago. No udder. She doesn't seem to have any interest in bucks, and I haven't noticed a definite heat cycle. She was really wooly this winter and has about an inch and a half of floof around her body making her look bigger. Any guesses on if she seems pregnant? If she doesn't have babies, I think we could handle adding a Nubian doeling or two to the farm this spring/summer which I am really looking forward to. No complaints if she doesn't pop out anything. Shamrock though! Super pregnant! We had 13 turkeys hatch over the past 24 hours, so I don't mind if she waits a few days to add her own kids in the mix.

Is the orange one an FF? At this point, if she has NO udder whatsoever, I'd guess she didn't settle. Shamrock is beautiful, I look forward to seeing who she has in there!

I'm jealous your turkeys are already hatching!

They are both FF. The buck isn't as pretty looking but his dad was blond the front half of his body and brown the rest in a kind of ombré look. He's a sturdy guy! Jumps a 5 ft fence like Santa's reindeer. Hot wire fixed that. As for the turkeys, 2 hens have laid like 46 eggs total. Still laying...
