    I have a goat in labor, her bubble has popped about 15 min ago. I saw the feet but she has sucked them back in. Not regularly actively pushing. Is she okay or should I go in??

    I'd take a peak and make sure the head isn't turned back.

    Glad all is well and congrats on the buckling. :weee

    Hard to give that type of advice over a forum like this. So many factors and each doe is different.

    Better to give a gentle peak than to possibly lose a kid. Generally when it's at the point where someone is posting on a forum about it, it's best to take a peak.
