    I feel for you! Last year was mostly a buck year for me. Paid me back for the year before that when I had mostly does, which was bad in a way because I wanted to keep so many of them!! Mine are due to start kidding in a few weeks....maybe this year will be more even.

    Two more kids born. Both bucks. So out of 5 sets of twins, I have 100% bucks. Not a single doe. 1 more goat to go.

    A friend of mine has had all bucks so far this year. I am just hoping that not all my goats will have bucks!

    A breeder in our area splurged on a fancy new buck, only to have him throw 13 bucks and 1 doe his first year!

    This is my first kidding year, so I'll be happy with at least one little girl (preferably from my La Mancha, lol).

    My Nigey doe gave us 5 little bucklings in 2 years time. This year we're hoping for all does from her and from our 2 Munchies. :girl::pray:

    I've had 4 sets of twins over the years and out of those 8 kids..... 7 were bucks. Each year was a new buck too.

    She's doing ok :)...I had to keep her separated for awhile because Daisy was keeping her out in the cold after I sold my herd queen....so she had to be put up where she could have cover and stay warm. I have just switched the two, so now Daisy is in and Madeline out. As soon as this stinkin' snow melts we will be putting up additional shelter to avoid this problem.
    She was bred to my Sable buck, so if she took she'll be due the 1st week of April.:pray:
    Her horns are "scurs" though :( After she kids I'll be either rebanding or wire sawing them off.
    But she is her cute and loveable self...will get updated pics this weekend and post them on my kidding thread...
