    My doe's ligaments are ALMOST gone...a little left of one and she is not laying down in the stall. Earlier tonight she was NOT walking right--and posty for sure...just wondering how long might it be? I'm keeping vigil.... :greengrin:

    My does tend to 'stretch' a lot after going posty. Sit in the corner of the stall and keep an eye on her for about 15 minutes, and if you see her stretching subtly then she's getting the kids into position.... my does usually kid a day or so after starting the stretching business.

    She has lost her ligaments over about 2 hours....does this mean anything? I know every doe is different, just looking for some perspective from the experts! :)

    Still nothing but felt where the ligaments were-extreme mush. She is out in our little paddock grazing again this morning after being up and down all night. I stayed until around midnight and checked periodically. Do they normally want to eat at this point?

    Some doe's eat during labor and only stop long enough to push a kid out. Push, eat, push, eat through the whole birthing process.

    Well...she is done eating-I think. She is really miserable and contracting lots-no stringy stuff coming out yet though. The mucous plug came out earlier...now the wait continues. Hoping for some babies today!

    Unfortunatly it could be several more weeks. Some doe's loose the plug a month before delivery. Hopefully yours won't make you wait too long.

    I had 3 does do this to me when they lost their ligaments and were restless all day.The one doe did it all day then kidded at 9:00pm,the other same thing she didn't kid until the next morning and the last does acted the same as the other 2 kidded at 4:30-5:00 pm.
    I hope your girl goes soon for you.

    Well-we thought she lost her plug but it was just gradually coming out. At the end-her plug came out and the babies were about ten minutes behind-it was like plug came and then there was a bubble-I was waiting for the stream everyone speaks of-she had no stream! Crazy!
