I have a doe who is in heat right now. I'm trying to stagger breeding for year round milk production. My doe has been bred and kidded before. After she stood for the buck twice I took him back to his…Continue

As breeding season begins, I'm getting ready to decide who gets bred, and who doesn't. I'm fairly new to goats, and purchased one goat from a breeder that was less then honest. I purchased a buckling…Continue

"I have a FF right now giving 2 pounds per day at 359 days fresh. I'm not breeding her because I want to see how long she can keep this up."

"Babies have all nursed, and have round full bellies. They have all been peeing and pooping. I've been watching them for a few hours now. Thank you for your encouragement not to call the vet. Obviously the end results were great, and no…"

"Thank you. I'm 99% sure of the day she was bred. I'm also grateful to you and Debra for the reassurance to stick it out. I had one other doe go to day 156. I am positive of her bred date too. I'm hoping for does for your girl ;-)"

"Yay! So glad it went well, especially after all the waiting she put you through. The babies are darling. It's awesome that you got THREE doelings! Seems like the trend is towards doelings this year, last year it was bucklings. Hope it keeps up!…"

"We will be monitoring her and babies progress for a while to make sure they both do well."

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Phebe's discussion Overdue goat
"Congratulations!!! Glad it all went well. Hope she can produce enough for three. It's a good idea to weigh the kids if you have a scale that can do ounces. That way you'll know if someone isn't gaining as much as the others."

"THEY ARE HERE!!!! The wait is finally over. Triplet girls (does) babies are doing well, and nursing. Mom is a ff and not sure about what these babies are doing to her udder. She is kicking a bit when babies nurse. I have mom and babies in a large…"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Phebe's discussion Overdue goat
"My guess is that the date is wrong. This is why vets don't induce goats. You would certainly not be the first person to have bred a goat a second time and forgot to write it down. I once had a goat who was six weeks "late." Very…"

"Glad to hear she is still doing fine, but you must be going crazy. I know I would be.  Hopefully all will be well with the kids-come-lately. ;)"

"Still no babies yet. Bag is full, ligaments are loose and babies are extremely active. She is more than ten days late now. I'm beginning to wonder if she will ever have them... she is happily eating, drinking, and going about life as usual."

"Thank you for easing my concern. My goats don't typically go this long. I was getting worried, but after hearing from you all I feel much better about her going over due :-) Thank you for sharing your goat wisdom"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Phebe's discussion Overdue goat
"As much as I hate people asking about the pooch test a couple months after a goat has been bred, this is definitely a pregnant vulva. About 500 births here and have heard of thousands more, and there isn't a concern about goats being late.…"
