    I just got a call from the man where I took my 2 Boer/Kiko cross girls to be bred, letting me know that one had been bred. I need to know please if there is a gestation calendar somewhere that I can print off, or if someone can please give me a due date. She was bred on 12-13-07. The boer x does were a gift from my son , before I bought my Nubians. What a difference in personalities!

    Looks like she will be due around 5/11/08. I think Sondra had a good spreadsheet thing for it. Also Fiasco farms has a calculator here: http://fiascofarm.com/goats/duedate.htm

    Out of curiousity - how do the personalities compare? I've had Nubians but haven't done anything with the meat breeds.... yet.

    Thank you Josie,
    As to personalities, my Nubians are very quiet, calm and loving. Actually very well mannered. The boer x girls are another story altogether! They are much pusher, louder and constantly into mischief. If they can climb on it or in it, you can believe they'e going to. Sometimes I wonder if they are playing Mt. Goat. They're always into something. The nubians are just more laid back.
