I have four does, one wether, and one tiny male. The male was new to the herd 2 months ago, and he was a big hit with the ladies even though I am not sure he could even reach their private parts-ha ha. Now I have fat does. Ok, so my question is should I be able to see their pregnancys this early or do you think they are just fat. I ask about the fat bit because I had bought alfalfa by accident about 2 months ago and they all loved it. Wanting to spoil my kids and save money, I bought it a few times more because not only did they love it, they didn't waste it all. And when I say ate it all I mean they ate all of the one wafer I gave them. (for 6 goats!), and they seemed happier. Normally I give them more orchard grass and they sift through it and throw it everywhere, I thought I was doing a good thing (esp with winter approaching), but now I don't know. Last year at this time they were fat and sassy with big bellies, but this year all of them are huge and have big bellies! I have since cut back to regular orchard grass (I guess that's what it's called, but I am still new to this) and I get them out running with me a bit around the house. (they like that!) But I am also worried that I might be depriving the does of essential nutrition. How can you tell if they are preggers? If they are I think they will be due in February. Thanks!
