    I noticed her vagina is starting to flop when she runs and is very mushy around her rectum-vagina to touch. When should I expect babies? she must of been bred when we bought her or I would know the due date.. thanks for your help!

    Fiasco says once the ligaments are gone you can generally expect her to kid within 12 hours. That's been my experience although determining when they are really gone always has me second guessing myself. I woke up yesterday to find that my doe's ligs were gone. She kidded shortly before 5pm.
    Goodluck

    What Breed is she?
    I have nubians and I can tell a better time frame for Kidding by the tightness of their Udders. Their udders look full for several weeks - until about 5-6 hours before kidding and then they look like their udders will explode any minute.
