Pregnant animals will get an enlarged udder starting one to six weeks prior to kidding. Some signs that parturition, or kidding, is approaching include hollowness on either side of the doe's tail, the doe isolating herself from the rest of the herd, and an enlarged udder and teats that begin to fill with milk.

I find goats tricky to pin down as to when they will kid.

Surest method for me was feeling the ligaments on either side of the tail base.

They feel like 2 hard pencils... then suddenly they soften (3 days or less) and then disappear (24 hours or less).

Your responses are much too sane. Your doe is holding out until you are completely frazzled, have not had sleep for three days, and are existing on coffee as your sole substance.

You could try tricking her and just casually mention that you are going away for the weekend. That may provoke her perverse thinking into trying to mess up you alleged plans and birth those kids currently being held hostage... just a thought. :)

Good luck with your doe. We are all rooting for you! Of course we would really appreciate pictures once the blessed event occurs. Please and thank you.
