    Hello...

    I am new to farming and have two goats. One gave birth two days ago just fine. Second time mom. My other goat is due today and a first time mom. She has alot of brown discharge coming out. Is this normal? It has me really worried...
    Any help, much appreciated!

    I have 4 goats and breed them regularly yes that is normal if she didn't have that she would not be having a baby that baby will be born with in 6 hours

    Oh my gosh! You were right! I read your post and realized it had been about that long. So I ran down to the goat shed and laying on the floor of hay was the cutest little baby girl goat! Thank you so much! I was really worried because her discharge was brown. I thought the baby had died. But there she was alive and doing well. However, when I got up this morning and went back to check on her, there was a ball of stuff on the ground. When I looked at it closer I realized it was the second baby and not fully developed and must have died a few months back. I am grateful to have one alive.
    thanks so much!

    Are you sure the ball of stuff wasn't the after birth?

    No, I opened up the bag and inside was a little tiny baby goat. It had a head, but no eyes, and it had little legs but they all looked so small. I am guessing it must have pasted a month or so ago. She may have gotten butted by another goat or something and that must have been why it died. It was very sad looking. I buried it in our pet graveyard.
    thanks
