    I have a pregnant dairy goat that should kid within a week. One of my other does has been butting her in the side and I am worried that it might cause an abortion. Should I be concerned?

    Well if she is for sure due within a week, the kids would be viable should they be born early. Can you separate them? That would be a better option.
