Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

I wrote last June 30 about my goat Zoe who was bought bred but really wasn't.  I put her in several times after that with the buck and she kept coming back into heat. Well, when I bought a new buck on Oct 21st I put her with him to keep him company.  I checked on her udder occasionally but figured she was going to get pregnant again.  Today I noticed she had an udder!  Now I have NO idea when she will kid.  Go figure.

This buck is good. He's the father of the quints I lost and the triplets we just had. I have another due in the next couple of days. Could she be due that soon?

I'm guessing that she'll kid in the next three weeks. Doesn't narrow things down for you much, but at least she is pregnant!

Very interesting.  I have a doe who I also bought bred and I'm not sure if she is or not???  I keep checking her udder too, but so far, there isn't one.  When I get my buck, I will see how she responds to him.

From what I understand, a doe can have an udder several weeks ahead or not until the last few hours before kidding...  but it does indicate that she is pregnant, so that's a good sign!
