    As some of you know, i fianlly broke down and bought a buck last winter.( being a frist time buck owner has hads it ups and downs lol):lol: it was becoming a nightmare to get the girls to a buck at just the right time.:he

    I had decided to milk thur my older girls and wait till spring to find a Nubain Buck...for my yearlings.

    I covered both FF's girls and waited to see if Reggie was mature enough did the pg test girls were both preggers...:woot Reggie had done his Job... 3 weeks to go and.

    They are both building cute little udders... I am so excited..... the girls are tired of me looking at them and waiting:pop

    If i ever get the picture thing figured out i'll post some pictures.....:idunno

    What pregnancy test can you do on goats? I have a girl who could be, but not sure and would love to know.

    First, :frow & :welcome :)
    Second, http://www.biotracking.com/goats is the most accurate way to go... there are other ways to know, but those take time & experience. There is the tummy typing method(just the way it sounds), pooch pic comparison, waiting to see if the doe comes back into heat, palpating the right side/kid side and feeling for movement, or having an ultrsound done, but unless you can get in with the 4H-ers when they have their's done, that is an expensive way to go.

    I was just making arrangements for someone to come take blood for a test, and voila, she kidded, all on her own, two beautiful little doelings, so no test needed now! Good luck with yours!
