    I know I have asked this before, but I dont remember what the consensis was :doh:

    what day do you start counting for the 150 or 145 days?

    I usualy start on the day of breeding. But Fiasco Farm must do it the day after breeding as I have counted out a due date of May 1st but FF says May2nd

    I know you're supposed to start counting the day after breeding as day one but I always do the day of breeding. The only reason I do that is because its just easier for me to remember that way.

    I use Fiasco Farm's due date calculator to find out a due date. Then I count backwards from the due date. For example: Anna, Fuchsia and Hallelujah are due March 4th. So that's day 150, so 145 falls on Feb 27th. 140 falls on Feb 22nd. etc. That's how I do mine.

    I count the day of breeding. I use a different calculator though. http://desertsun.topcities.com/goatpreg.htm This one is based on 145 days, I add one day to make 146. I am thinking I might add another day to make it 147, but for now, this is what I do.
