One of first timers is 66 days pregnant and does not have a bump. I know she is pregnant because I was really careful to watch buck and her this time. She is acting differently and walks differently.…Continue

"^ I agree with everything above. I've never seen any evidence of pregnancy at two months except for a lack of going back into heat like normal. I have had more than one doe successfully breed and not conceive. Does she have pretty obvious heat…"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Sarah Boussuge's discussion First time mama isnt showing a bump
"When you say bump, do you mean stomach or udder? In any case, I wouldn't expect to see anything at 2 months. I have only thought a goat looked pregnant at two months four times -- in each case, the doe had quintuplets ... yes, FIVE. So, you…"

Julieanne Cook replied to Sarah Boussuge's discussion First time mama isnt showing a bump
"It's not uncommon for them not to show till the last few weeks of pregnancy. A better indicator is the development of an udder, which also may not occur till the last few weeks or even days.  Simply witnessing the mating is not assurance…"

First time mama isnt showing a bump

One of first timers is 66 days pregnant and does not have a bump. I know she is pregnant because I was really careful to watch buck and her this time. She is acting differently and walks differently. Aspen is a relatively large girl who came from quintuplets. What is going on? How many would you say are in there? Is she just not going to show at first because it's her first time? See More

"If she is seriously only a foot tall, I would NOT breed her. I have one like that. She's six years old, and I never sold her because I was afraid someone would try to make teacup goats or something crazy. She actually makes the BEST quarantine…"

"Ok I know she didn't get pregnant the first time because she came back into heat 3 weeks later. At this point, I am seriously considering selling her as a pet because of her small size. She weighs about 40 lbs but is a chunk. She is about a…"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Sarah Boussuge's discussion junior doe doesnt let my bucks near her
"What you describe is a doe that is not in "standing heat." Even if you were able to hold her, and a buck bred her, she would not get pregnant. Plenty of people have tried, and it just doesn't work because there are no eggs available…"

My first timer Selah has had two heat cycles in the last couple months. She was put in with one of my bucks but she wouldn't let him anywhere near her. I kept her with him for 2 days and nights but she didn't get pregnant. This time i tried my other buck. He is more proactive and will chase her. She wanted nothing to do with him. She tried ramming herself into walls trying to get away from him. She is not scared of the bucks, she sees them yearround through a fence. I tried holding her still so…See More

I was wondering if you keep baking soda out for him for his rumen. Also to keep track of growth measure his heart girth once a month or every 2 weeks then you'll be able to keep track of it.
