    Hi, Well one of the boer goat does i have just got, its due late april as far as the people knew that gave her to us *bless them* and today i noticed she had a clear yellowish amber discharge... not a heap.. but enough.. I have heard that if its amberish it is amniotic fluid.. she has not kidded.. her udders are fuller, and she isnt comfortable with me touching her ligs.. she has dropped a lot though.. should i be worried by this at all or is it normal?? if you have seen this how long be4 kidding should start?
    My cashmere has white musous.. but a lot of my goats have had this from a month be4 kidding...

    usually it is up to a day before they kid, can be a bit longer before but not as common.

    Sounds like kids soon :cool:

    My does get the amber colored mucous like an hour to right up before they kid. I've had does have the whitish discharge for up to a month before they kid.
