my doe who kidded the end of January kidded sometime about 7-8 am. When I went out at about 8:45 am the little boy was standing and almost dry. The doeling was still extremely wet, not standing and it was almost 0 degrees outside.
I wish I would have known that she was out there kidding. She never made a sound! And she was day 143 to boot!
Mine have been all round the clock almost this year. Several kidded around midnight, one at 7:00 a.m. one around 6:00 p.m. and some in the afternoons. I think they were trying to make me insane!! :roll:
Mine have varied over the past kiddings. This time I had 2 go @ midnight 1 went @8 am and the other at 5 pm. The ONLY way to have a goatie give birth at the Right time for you is to expect them to do the opposite!LOL :ROFL:
Well for this year we had ...
Contredanse kid at 2:30pm
Daisy at 5:30am
Potsie kid at 8am
Civil kid at just after midnight
Minuet kid at 6pm
Blossom kid at just after midnight
Last year. These are approximates. I can remember the time pretty good on nearly all of them...
Blossom kidded at 3pm
Berry at 11am
My times are all over the place.
However, that being said. I have noticed a good round-about way to tell when my girls will kid. If I notice the ligaments gone in the AM it'll be a late evening kidding. If they go midday it'll be a wee-hours of the night kidding and if they lose them around 5pm its 6am that they kid. If they lose them around 10-11pm then its midday or late the next morning. Rarely really fails.
