    Hello from Kansas and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us! I must say, that was one of the most jarring pictures I've ever seen on BYC! [​IMG] Sadly I know nothing of goats at present but hope to get a couple milk goats in the future. The folks in the link below might be able to help out out if you post the pics there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/22/other-pets-livestock
    There is also BYC's sister site, BackyardHerds that you might visit as well. Best of luck to you!

    G’Day from down under Amyisadog [​IMG] Welcome!

    Tee hee, I have to confess, I nearly spluttered my coffee when I opened your post [​IMG]

    Sorry, I too have no knowledge of goats but as redsoxs has mentioned, the folks on the links provided should be able to assist.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
  5. Howdy and welcome man do you fit in.Just told someone they weren't the only nut on the planet.so a profile picture would be good .If the goat is far enough along you can see the kid moving . If the goat hasn't been milking it will bag up.

    though I did have a Doe that bagged up but she was running with Wethers.

    If you are concerned I would have a vet check.... But really there is no telling at which point they were bred

    Believe me when they start showing you will know but for the health of the goats I would have a vet check em over not only for pregnancy but for diseases as well.

    i am not an expert on goats. I only had four little Reprobates Three neutered males and one female. I adopted them from a navy family and they were my first and only goats.

    If you have access to Facebook, there are quite a few good goat groups on there.

    Depending on how far along your goats are, you may be able to feel kids by applying pressure on the belly, just in front of the udder. Generally goat lady parts aren't very helpful for determining pregnancy, minus being in heat or shortly before kids are due.
