Hey guys!
I haven't been on in a while so figured I'd go ahead and post my breeding schedule and due date(because we all know they go on that exact day )
The bucks are new to their jobs (born Feb and March this year)

The first breeding was of mh5t pt Lillie and wings & Caprines il jasper on 7/27/18 for a due date of 12/20/18 (gold/white doe and white buck with black and brown patches)

Lillie was also bred to wings and Caprines Charlie wyatt on 9/30/18 for kids on 2/22/19. Charlie is a polled red buck with minimal white

Charlie bred sgm duchess Camilla (cami) on 9/3/18 for kids 1/26/19 she short cycled so was bred in 9/9/18 for kids 2/1/19
Came back into heat 10/12/18 for kids 3/12/19 short cycled again was bred again on 10/19/18 for kids 3/12/19

All due dates are for day 145

I have sold my other 2 does because of their allergies to something in my field or possibly my field being to protein rich for them which caused anal scalding (the vets didn't know which it was)

I am really looking forward to these kiddings, pray for doelings this time around

Is Lillie an FF? Sorry, I looked and didn't see that you posted if she was. I think she is? On ALL my ff does they start to grow a beard about 2-3 months before they kid it has never failed me. Even if it's just 3 or 4 long hairs when I see that I know they are for sure bred. Just a weird little sign I have noticed. And it would help me a ton if you can watch and see if that happens or better yet get some pictures if it starts happening and what time it starts. So I know I'm not crazy, lol. I think because of hormones it grows? I've had 2+ year old does with no beards and and as soon at they were 2 months along they started getting long hairs and eventually a nice little beard. Who knows maybe we can discover a new pregnancy sign (unless someone already knows this. I haven't found anything about it online though:hu)

Lillie is a ff, I will watch and see. I know on my last if she did not grow a beard at all but it's interesting. Are yours Nubian or Nigerian?
Awesome, thank you! I have both. But all/most my does have kidded before so the beard thing doesn't help me anymore. And the one FF that I do have is a Nubian and none of my Nubians ever get beards.
