I've had three goats deliver so far. Two of those had kids that were in abnormal positions. Is there something that I can do to prevent this? Is there a reason these kids are jumbled up as badly as they have been? Neither kid survived. I am not familiar with pulling kids and the mothers have never had trouble delivering before. The first kid was born head first with no legs, I was unable to find and pull the legs forward, the chest was jammed way back in the birth canal (these are pygmies and I just was not able to get my hand far enough inside). I did get the kid out, but it didn't survive the pulling. The second kid I just pulled from another doe was rear facing with one leg forward and I have no idea where that other leg was, this kid was just a tangled mass. This one died before I was able to get it out. Both those kids were just huge buck kids, I think that possibly had they been in a normal position the does might have delivered them without help, but since they weren't the does just could not push them out.
