Nothing has changed and there are no kids. The past six years of raising goats have taught me to be patient and to watch for the kidding signs that are legit and true. This can happen days before the babies decide to make their arrival. All that is happening here is the babies have dropped to the lower region of the abdomen. The birth canal is opening and preparing for the birth of the new kids.
Some does will never drop their kids as low as other does will. This is where the milk dropping into the udder becomes a better sign of a near labor. The udder will appear to be more full as you examine and compare from the udder of yesterday. Both quarters, front and back, should be full and tight.
This is the BEST sign that kidding is near. You can feel the udder to examine the tightness. If you were to gently squeeze the udder, there should be no loose skin. It should feel similar to a balloon or ball full of air.
Messy Hair When kids are moving into position for labor, the movements and changes irritates the doe. Swelling of the vulva The vulva is the outer, hairless area under the tail. This is where the kid will come out of her body. The vulva swells when pressure of the kid is there.
So, when you see the vulva looking swelled and larger than normal, get ready. I will admit, I have had does with swelled vulvas up to one month prior to kidding! Tail Ligments are separating This process presents a hollow space between the tail head and the top of the hip. You should be able to fit your fingers all the way around feeling the hollow area.
This generally happens a couple of days prior to the start of labor. Study the signs for a successful kidding season. These five signs have proven time and time again to be useful indicators that kidding time is near. Depending on the doe, sometimes she can show these signs for up to 1 month. Knowing the signs plus knowing your doe and how she carries will prepare you for the estimation of when labor will begin.
The best sure sign to know when your doe will be kidding is to know when she was bred by the buck. If possible, schedule the breedings and document closely. Finally, putting the approximate breeding date with the signs will give you a great understanding and feeling of relief when anxiously awaiting baby kids to love on.

They are inverted little pockets of skin. Anyone know what they are or seen this before? They remind me of belly buttons but there's no central mound of flesh. Turquoisebird , Mar 24, Mar 24, 2. More pics. Mar 24, 3. Mar 24, 4. Wow, never seen anything like that before. I certainly wouldn't chance using him for breeding though. Mar 24, 5. He's going to be banded for sure. Wish I didn't have to. Of course he's my best looking, fastest growing, flashiest kid I had born this year.
The way it goes I suppose. I've googled and asked on other boards, but no one knows exactly what this is yet. Mar 24, 6. Yup, probably from the Boer. Why is it always the best kid of the year that has some odd problem. A few years ago, my best doe had quads- 3 does and a buck. The nicest doeling was a hermie. The 2nd nicest doeling was a freemartin!
The 3rd doeling had already been spoken for. Mar 25, 7. Never heard of or seen this. Can't blame just boers. Mar 25, 8. No, but Boers are more apt to have multiple teats. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Show Ignored Content. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account?
