    Well thankfully Angel is Dancers dam so worst come to worst I can put them together and they can kid in the same stall. I only have 3 empty stalls.

    My schedule turned out rather crazy, I was running the Boer buck with the boer does, and hand breeding the Nubians, somehow they all came into heat like at the same time so here's what happened.

    Reba-Feb. 17
    Alyssa-Feb. 19
    Cupcake Feb. 21
    Ginger-Feb. 21
    Lucy-Feb. 21
    Linus-Feb. 21
    Sassy-Feb. 21
    Maggie Feb. 22
    Poco-Feb. 23
    Sapphire-Feb. 23
    Christianna-March 14
    Madeline-March 19

    Now how did it happen that I have 5 due on the same day?? It looks like I'm going to be going crazy trying to figure out where to put them all!!

    I actually prefer to get it over all at the same time. I like them all to be preg together. Less likley for one to bash the other in the belly if all of them are fat and slow. I get very stressed during kidding time and practically live in the barn. I usually lose weight due to all the trips to the barn and not eating. So getting it over so I can cut off the monitor and sleep is best for me.

    Annie is the only one that still needs to be bred, and all of our Saanens aren't going to be bred this year.

    I don't even know when my brother's does are due, some of them are HUGE!! :shock:

    Upset - 2/24

    Ginger - 3/16

    Chenille - 4/24

    Sapphire - 4/???

    Azriel - 5/1 or 5/7

    I won't be too busy with kids, as I only have 5 bred does, and they are quite spaced out.

    Our Myotonic Goats are due again in Feb./March
    Here is what it looks like
    Bred to Yankee
    Salt -- 2-28-08
    Blossom -- 3-1-08

    Bred to Nutty
    Kiera -- 3-12-08
    Tiki -- 3-12-08

    That is if everyone took.
    I havn't noticed anyone coming into heat but they tricked me once before.

    I wish I had some reserved. Right now I have 3 bucks from Feb and April kiddings of 07 still left. We are about to wether 2 of them.
    And I just had 3 does kid and have 6 bucks and 1 doe for sale.
    Talk about a bucky year.

    Last year, all does in with the red buck kidded 3/31 - 4/7. Most of them between 2 days.
    Does in with Coal kidded across one month (his first stab at breeding duty).

    All 28 does were put in October 5th with 3 different bucks. March 2nd kidding begins. Ooh, wish we had put the boys in 2 days earlier to have them over the weekend. Shoot.

    We still have a ton of does left to be bred. It really sucks when you don't have enough pens to separate everyone! The pen should be getting finished today, so the rest of the does might be getting put in with the buck.. but we will see. This should be an interesting kidding season. I have never kidded out on pasture before.

    Sooo.. my dairy goats kidding schedule:

    Harmony: 2/6/08 OR (most likely) 4/11/08
    Miss Piggy: 3/22/08
    Fern (who is not a dairy goat.. she is my only Kiko doe that I own): 3/20/08

    My brother also has several dairy goats due to kid in March/April PROBABLY.. and I am pretty much the kidder/vet around here so I will be taking care of them too.
    The rest of the does left to be bred are my parent's Kiko herd. This kidding season we will probably have over 75 babies!!!!! WHOA.

    Well, my MiniNubians are due to kid March-May. Here is the schedule (all counted to day 150):

    Cookie (full Nubian) X Jasper (MiniNubian) - 3/20
    Rosebud X Grant - 3/21
    Molly X Jasper - 3/23
    Montana X Star - 3/24
    Daisy X Charlie - 3/24
    Raisin X Grant - 3/24
    Ivory X Star - 3/25
    Misty X Star - 4/1
    Arthur X Eureka - 4/8
    Windy X Eureka - 4/10
    Zephyr X Jasper - 5/25

    I think that's all. We will be busy! I like having them all kid fairly close together as we bottlefeed the kids from day one and that means midnight feedings... I prefer to be up for a few nights and then be able to sleep, but if they are all spread out, I get so tired that I am no good for anything. :)
