This is my only goat that we didn't know her due date for sure. Last December when we put the buck in with the does he bred two right off and we saw those, but we had barely missed Capella's heat. I kept the buck in there past when she should go into heat again, but never saw her go into heat. Many here said it was likely she went into heat with the other does and was bred then. We sent the buck home shortly after new years. If I went by the other does day 150 she would be 9 days over due. but I suspect it was later...this nubian is HUGE!!! Last year I missed her kidding because she didn't show mucus, no huge bagging up (though she bags up way early, but it didn't get any bigger prior to) I was clueless about ligaments back then so I have no idea about that. Today I went out to give her her grain and she didn't touch it. I thought maybe she was being finicky about the minerals again so I brought her grain without and she took a couple of nibbles. This concerned me as my first thought was hypocalcemia. I had upped her grain significantly to prevent this and she is also on free choice local and alfalfa pellets. Then I felt her ligaments - I'm very bad at this...but I don't seem to feel them, yet her tail is still up??? I don't know. her vulva is considerably less puffy, she had some hay sticking to it which made me think there was something coming out over night, but no strings (of the three other does kiddings I have witnessed only one had strings before). What is very weird is she has been hollow at the hips and low hanging belly for a few weeks and now there is no hollows at all and the babies are moving around like crazy. the last few weeks she has had this tired look about her, like her eyes are never fully open, but today she is wide eyed and just looks very different. So I'm concerned, could she be kidding? Could she be getting sick? (please no, I have had enough of that this year!) She shows no sign of illness other than not eagerly gobbling up her grain. This I know...There will only be hand breeding for all my does here on out - none of this complete guessing!!!!
