    So i thought it would be interesting if we all tested the theory myfainters brought up and determined if it's true or just a old wives' tale this kidding season. So far there have been 2 or 3 people who say it works.
    The theory is: if your doe's poll smells slightly bucky, she has atleast 1 buck in there. Really bucky, chance of twin bucks or more, and no smell indicates doelings.
    Post your does who are 2 months + along in their pregnancy, and do a guess on what you think she may have by the scent of her poll.
    This is going to be really, really fun!

    Oh... I'll have to check Poppy too. She is due the end of January- beginning of Feb. I'll hold off on checking Patches until the end of the month since she isn't due until the end of February.

    Hallie--very bucky
    Joy--no smell (does, I hope!)
    Goldie--no smell (not SURE if she's preg still though because she had some pinkish discharge and no udder yet)
    Boo--no smell
    Chickadee--no smell
    Sparrow-- only a month along
    Charm--2 months or so along and no smell
    PeeDee--2 months along and no smell
    Tulip--no smell
    Cinnamon (sold her yesterday, but there is no smell)

    I will update as they deliver. :) Hallie, Cinnamon, and Joy will be first--within the next two weeks or so. Also, Panama and Ophelia are at a nearby farm, so I might be able to get their owner to 'sniff' them so I can add them to the list. :)

    Re: Sex of kids by smelling poll---Let's all Experiment

    Alright so I went out to the barn today with my mom and she thought I was crazy for smelling the goats heads, But when I told her why, I think it made her think we are all crazy. Faith is due today and she still smells really bucky so we will see what she gives me.
    Faith is due Feb 8th and she has a really bad buck smell so I am guessing 2 bucks. Even though she was super bucky she gave me one :kidred:
    Ruby is due on the January 12th and she has a kinda bucky smell so I am guessing one buck one doe. Well Ruby kidded at about 12:10a.m. on the 13th of January with :kidblue: :kidblue: So I guess I was a little off we will see about faith.
    I will let you know as the kids arrive.

    My ND Daisy, due March, smells slightly bucky, so I'm thinking :kidblue: :kidred: .
    Kidded with one :kidred: I sniffed her >mama's< poll after kidding, and she retained her bucky smell. . . . . So I think it would be a good idea to smell the doe's poll before breeding, and write down her natural scent so you don't forget, and then sniff her again when she is three months preggers. :D

    Re: Sex of kids by smelling poll---Let's all Experiment

    So I went out and sniffed my goats head. Mesa, who's due at the end of Jan had a bucky smell. But then, so did Splash, who was due the 30th of Dec, and shows no sign of anything, so I'm pretty sure she's not preggers. But, no one has said anything about sniffing the polls of dry does, so it may mean nothing. Maybe they had just been butting heads, who knows.
