Hi, i have a ewe that was mounted 2 times in a week in march and she should be due soon. I went out today and she has hollowed out and had some white mucas. She hasn't bagged up yet but her udder is low and her teats are pointed down.

Is she in early labour? And answers would be helpful.

Shes had mucas that fell off this morning (only like a teaspoon worth) then the photo is more that started coming out, still only a teaspoon worth after this photo was taken

She may not be in labor, but her body is preparing for labor. In labor, she will paw out a nest, get up, lay down, act restless. Keep us posted on her!
Thanks, how many days do you think until she lambs? Could it still be a week or a couple days?

Pregnant ewes are Jamaica sheep. As in
Ja’ -Make-uh-me-crazy!! It’s her job to bag up with an udder about to burst, for WEEKS! Or, not have a bag at all. She will drop goopy goo from her lady parts, you will get all excited and………….nothing. LOL

My first sheep were 4 bred ewes. I was out the door at daybreak and bed checked at 10:30 every night…….,FOREVER! I was finally rewarded with 2 ewes both having twins while I slept.

So,yes, she will lamb soon! And yes, she will lamb several weeks from now.

Glad I could be of help! BWA-HA-HA-HA!!!!

Relax, she will lamb when she is ready. Then you can hug and squeeze a newborn lamb. There’s nothing like it!

No it doesn’t make much sense. Trying to pinpoint “when” does keep the excitement level up.
