No kids yet....poor old lady, she's waddling when she walks. She looks so uncomfortable.

Oh, the poor HUGE thing! I'm leaning towards the kids exploding out of her when she finally goes into labor. I have no idea how she's still able to move around!

I sold one of my Nigerian does last year to a non-breeding home because she was small even by our breed standards and I couldn't bear watching the last three weeks of her pregnancies. She'd heave and huff and pant walking across the pen, and when she'd lay down her little legs would stick out to the side and up in the air like a turtle. She always kidded just fine, but I just couldn't watch it anymore, LOL.

I'll be thinking quick, easy kidding for you guys!

two gynormus bucklings and one tiny stillborn doe:cry:

I really wanted a doe to keep from her

Completely aside from the explosive kidding condition, that is one downhill goat...

Congratulations. Sorry about the doe.

I am uneddukated about goats - I thought she was going to have an entire litter. How many kids do goats usually have? Are three unusual? Do they ever have four? Is two unusual? those are big looking boys. IN the end, did she cook over-long? Or normal gestation? I just wonde if they cooked too long and the doe died, or may be it was all just they way it goes?

Also, Carol, if the males are called bucklings, shouldn't the baby doe females be called...ehrm...ducklings?

I'm bad, I'm sorry, Jesus forgive me and all the pygmies in Africa.

LOL, actually they are called doelings.
Normally they have 2. Two small kids is easier on the doe than 1 bigger kid. Triplets are unusual and does should only have 2 teats
