Hi everyone!
This is our first time with a pregnant doe and she got bred at her previous home accidentally. She is a Nigerian dwarf doe (3 years old) and this is her second freshening. She bagged up a couple weeks ago but it is really starting to fill up now. Her left ligament feels squishy but isn't gone and her right doesn't feel very squishy yet. By the looks of her and the description of her ligaments when would you guess she is due to kid? Thanks so much!!

Thanks! The first possible due date was the 17th and the second was the 26th and then there was a third even later... so, the 26th is probably the date! Thanks so much

Don't feel bad, i have one right now that has passed her third due date.....don't try to breed a chubby nigerian , lol

I would definitely keep an eye on her. I would be checking her every day. Look for pawing, getting up and down, discharge, and spaced out eyes. Keep us posted!! :pop
Thanks! I've been checking her every morning during chores and every evening during chores as well. Seems her ligaments are still soooo slowly loosening. I'm thinking and hoping by this coming weekend! Thanks again!
