    My Nubian doe is on her second freshening, and the earliest due date is June 19th. This is for certain, as there aren't any bucks for 20 miles. If not more.
    She is starting to get a larger udder than usual. It swings around when she runs, along with her ears! [​IMG] She is not showing any other signs, but she isn't very expressive during heat either, and last time, two days before she dropped twin doelings, we were considering the possibility that she might be pregnant. She's very good at hiding.

    This is normal. Their 2nd fresh and 3rd fresh udders are always larger than the last. My Nubian started her udder in January and kidded in March. [​IMG]

    Thanks!
    So yesterday, I went out and messed with the girls, and I felt some babies!! I'm thinking twins for Artemis, probably a single for Sable, and I have no idea for Ginny (the one who's bagging up)
    YAY BABIES! I will make you all jealous come June and July... [​IMG]
