Newton. I wouldn't worry to much yet if she is attacking the chicken feed. How long has she not been eating and how much feed/grain did she get b4 she stopped.

I agree. Others are going to ask for pictures. :) Those would be very helpful.
Did you check her ligaments?
I'm still only going off of the single kidding I had last year. And my months of reading. :lol: But I know she acted differently before she gave birth. I know they can also "talk" to themselves, they'll stare into the distance, and generally act different than normal.
Maybe being mean is her way of telling you to get out so she can give birth. :hu
I'll try and get some pictures, it will be hard to get on of her udder since she isn't shaved, and I'm guessing she is tender since she acts out if I try to touch her stomach anywhere near that area. And omg she doesn't stop talking if she sees me or even our chickens she will follow us along the fence line just the best way to describe it is "yelling " at us :gig
I don't really know how to check her ligaments.

Anything will be helpful. :) Yep, that sounds like a typical pregnant goat to me. :lol:

I'm a beginner at ligament-checking. I'm not even sure if what I felt last year was accurate. :hide I'm not even sure how to describe it....

All of my goats yell at and chase me when I'm out there wanting to know what I'm bringing them (feeding time or not). But I can throw hay over the fence they will run to it then just as fast run away. Then later with that same untouched hay on the ground they will get their head stuck in the pen (inside the pasture) to get hay I brought to the others. Even with a constant ramming from the other goats and no way to pull her head out. Stupid goats.lol

Ok so from what I can tell her ligaments a "squishy" as people call it and her vulva is red and puffy, and idk if this is part of it BUT SHE'S RUBBING HERSELF AGAINST EVERYTHING! INCLUDING ME....
Not that I don't find it cute... she's just almost knocking me over

Sounds to me like you'll be a kid owner within 24-48 hours. If she's a FF, she's probably confused and has no idea what's happening to her.

Haha. I understand that, @CLSranch. My girls have been fighting each other to be allowed out first.

Well, that sounds to me like a goat that could go into labor... how is her udder? Has she developed one yet?
I'm going to agree with @Latestarter. :)
