    Too early to kid?

    So, my mistake, I should have researched more. Here's my concern, I have two nubian/boer cross goats, one is a buck and other is a doe. The doe is only 8 months old and she's almost certainly been bred by the buck probably a month ago. This was the plan, I thought it would be fine as she'll be...

    Close to Lambing????

    It has been a while since I posted about my three adopted pregnant Ewes. The man that I purchased them from swore that they should give birth in September however here we are November and I still have no lambs. The girls are definitely pregnant however I don’t think they were as far along as...

    Lambing in Inclement Weather

    We got our flock of Barbados Blackbellies of 6 in early August and our girls must have already been pregnant, because I found a nice pair of surprises when I went out to them today: one of my ewes had twins! The gentleman we got them from said the two ewes were likely pregnant when we got them...

    Help! My doe rejected her babies! Alive or not? *****GRAPHIC IMAGES*****

    Help! We just went outside and found these two baby bunnies lying on the floor in her cage. We didn't even know she was pregnant! How do I find out if they're alive or not? How am I supposed to take care of them ifthey are alive? Help!

    New happy healthy babies!

    Joyful had her babies yesterday morning! Two big, beautiful, and healthy does. Mom and babies are all strong and doing great! We’re so thankful that it’s been such a smooth birth, nearly a completely hands off experience. (Besides the iodine umbilical cord dip) After losing a doe last week...

    Kaye's bunny journal

    I've had rabbits before, but it has been a long time since I've had more than one at a time. We got my buck, Thumper, three, almost four years ago and I got him a doe two months back, Blossom. I was told that she didn't take care of her litters. They had a litter of nice, healthy kits and...

    tricky kidding

    My one doe who I believe is breed is showing signs that she is kidding. Only problem is she seems ready to kid then all signs stop. Her udders are visible and about a hand full. She should be due soon but she doesn't have any saddle bags. She shows signs of mucus then stops. Has anyone else...

    Ferguson K's 2016 farrowing thread!

    This thread may not be very fun, I'm afraid. At the moment we only have two females bred. Rita, if she took on her first breeding, is due any day now. She's showing premature signs. Her little tests have started to enlarge and she's slowing on appetite. DH called me frantically to the pen...

    Looking for a good book on kidding.

    I have been trying to find a book which is either focused on, or contains a good section on, kidding. Preferably with photos - what's normal, what's not, what to do, etc. There is some very good info on this site, I'm just a real book person. Plus, when that time comes, I'm thinking that no...
