I had my Doe with a buck last time She came into heat and I saw her being bred twice during her cycle with him. She would normally be due to come back into heat in a week. Today she had a little…Continue

"If a doe appears to be in heat, and you want her pregnant, breed her. Either she did not get pregnant last time, or she did but is having a false heat. Be sure to mark both dates on your calendar in case the second heat was not real. "

Heat or possible pregnancy sign

I had my Doe with a buck last time She came into heat and I saw her being bred twice during her cycle with him. She would normally be due to come back into heat in a week. Today she had a little creamy discharge stuck to her vaginal opening. Would you say that she is probably coming into heat again and I should get her a second try with the buck or could this be a sign of pregnancy? Thanks in advance!

"Thanks! I had looked at that article when my first doe was pregnant but it was a good refresher. I guess I’ll know in a few weeks. She’s still very small. At least smaller than my other doe was at this stage. However it’s not so…"

"Thanks! Now that We’re a month out she is very obviously pregnant. She just popped all of a sudden and I can see movement sometimes. I’ll keep checking her udder to see if she’s getting close to kidding."

"You don't usually see any udder development until a month before the due date -- or even closer. Every now and then a first freshener doesn't have much of an udder until closer to a week before the due date. There is really not much reason…"

When should a first freshener start to show clear udder development and vulvar swelling. My other doe came to me pregnant and had a small udder and swollen vulva by three months post breeding. She was not a first freshener though. My current doe was bred April 2. She failed to come into heat again after that and she is slightly bigger in her barrel than usual. That said she should be due in about 6 weeks and has no udder development and her vulva is not swollen at all. I’m starting to question…See More

"My buyer's think the little pouch left behind with the burdizzo is funny. I tell them it's the wether's souvenir and they think it is hilarious.  "

"I have found the only time I would advise Burdizzo is on adult bucks..but you better have someone strong to hold them  LOL....   kids banding is preferred."
