Ive got a doe due on July 4
She has been huge for 2 months and has had a large udder for a month and half..
To confirm her date, this is the thread about her breeding
http://www.thegoatspot.net/forum/f217/breed-her-not-beat-her-139871/

Ive noticed lately the herd has been staying close to quarters, instead of wondering off like they usually do.
In the past couple days shes stayed around the other goats, but instead of laying with them like usual, shell go to a further corner or make everyone get up and move away from this little "porch"

A few days ago she stopped looking like her sides were going to split and more sunken towards the bottom.
Her ligament area also looks sunken, but she wont let me get a good feel.

Today her anus looks like its poking out extra far and is ..jiggly
And then there is goo..
Now, I know about the plug coming out, this isnt my first rodeo
But it also kinda looked like scours
Some places, like on her back leg, it looked like sperm
Some places, like tucked above and behind her anus, it looked greenish
and then on her actual vulva, it was clear

Probably her plug came out while she was laying down, right?

She is probably preparing herself for impending kidding. The plug can come out at any time, and the mucus was just that. And I am no professional, but I believe sperm are microscopic... The mucus plug is white, and it can get on their legs often.

The scours, did you mean that they are part of the plug? or just regular scours?

Maybe it was just her plug had mixed around her bum
I tried getting a closer picture of it, but she wouldnt cooperate

I don't think there is much need for worry ;) She is getting closer and will most likely birth around Independence day. Get some patriotic names ready!
