    My doe Belle is due ant time from 12/21/08 - 1/14/09 as of 150. I'm leaning towards the first because she already has a huge udder and you can see movement of the kids. These will be my first registerable kids! :stars: I"m soo excited.
    Then there is Bessie who is possibly bred and if so day 150 would be 12/17/08. I can't wait.
    Hoping for :girl: :boy: :baby: from Belle and hoping Bessie isn't bred.

    I know I am actually kinda dreading the cold. The answer to your ? is that it really depends on the doe from what I have experienced. But by 4 months I would say you should definately be able to. I am not sure though.

    You can definately feel kid movement anywhere from 3 months on.....With all my girls I start to feel for flutters at the middle of the third month. Goatnutty....I am excited with you for those impending registered babies! I will have my first and only due mid March! I hope you get Christmas babies!

    Thanks, Liz. I really think Christmas babies would be nice other than the fact that I would be busy.... It is soo cool to see her stomach moving I really think there is three.

    I'm thinking bessie is bred because she seems to be getting bigger :cry: ... Belle is still getting bigger and udder is bigger than before. I will get pic tommorow if possible cause it's already dark. Belle is on day 117. Has time stopped or what? :shrug:

    I have another ? now. The past 2 days Bessie's backend has become a bright pink color compared to normal. Is this a sign that she is bred? :shrug:

    bright pink can be a sign of heat too - Isa's whole butt goes bright pink when she's in heat... the others just get a streak of pink/red
