i have a 14 month old nubian and need to know if she is pregnant

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

my goat sarah is 14 months old and she was with a buck from dec. 20,2015 to jan. 16, 2016. i am just wondering if she is pregnant. i am not sure if she was bred or not because she had a sleepover with the buck for a while.(she was not at my house) her family has a history with silent heats so i am not sure whenever she goes into heat. she is starting to get rounder and she is very moody. this would be my "first" kidding ( i have just started my herd and i am still very unsure on what to do). can ya'll tell me some signs of pregnancy

A little early for signs yet, wait another month or so. After about 4 months you can softly bump them with your fist on the right side I believe. She should start showing some mammary changes and begin to have a more rounded belly.

Goats come in heat about every three weeks, so she should have been bred. The biggest sign of heat I've see is the vocalizing, and tail wagging.

There are three ways to know for certain. One, a blood test done at least a month after she is bred. Two, an ultrasound to look for kids. And three, she delivers kids.
