    When we see "sliming" on cows, they are generally due within two weeks? Is this the same for does? What we call "sliming" is when the thick "plug" in the uterus. Looking forward to your input here!

    She started this 2 days ago. Her vulva isn't swolen at all. Do you think it's possible that she may still go any time? Did your doe swell a lot or not very much? Beauty will be 3 in March and this is her 3rd kidding.
