I've had a young buck in with my girls since mid April. I've not seen anyone cycle since he arrived or any romantic action. My girls are Nigerian and a pygmy. My young buck is Nigerian. Last month I noticed the bucky odor from him but never before that. Could he have just been too young?
I'm kinda hoping yes so I can breed in October/November. But at the same time I'd love some babies!

How old was the buck when you put him in the pen in April?

With him running with the does. I would say they are probably pregnant. I have had a 4 month old do the job. The only way to know for sure is to pull blood and send it in for a pregnancy test.

I'll just have to wait it out. I dont have the extra funds atm for pregnancy tests. I've had a few unexpected things pop up that takes priority. I haven't had goats in ages let alone a pregnant one.
