    I had nice sleek lil babies when I got them last summe,r then by the end of fall they all looked like they could be pregnant (even the boys) and I have kept up the same feeding regime but they all have flat little sides now???

    If you don't feel fat when you put your hands on their hips, then you can assume the roundness is good. A well developed rumen often makes goats appear pregnant, no matter their gender.

    I was happy with the fat bellies, now they have gone flat on me but I havent changed any of my feeding and I want to know why they deflated!?
