She has an udder that looks like it's starting to form , this will be her first time kidding if she is pregnant .
Was there a buck in with her in the last 5 months?
Yes there was a buck with her .
Then I would say she is either REALLY well fed or pregnant. If her udder is starting to develop I'd say it's a pretty safe bet. (always a chance of false pregnancy, but get belly looks preggers) They can develop a few weeks out our a few days out. I would start at the day you put her with a buck, add on 150 days and expect kids any time after that.
I dnt ever feel anything when I slightly push on her side , I wanna say a false pregnancy
If you want to be 100% certain if she is bred or not, have a blood sample sent to biotracking. The vet can draw the sample up and it only takes a few seconds. Make sure the blood sample goes in a red top vacutainer. If you are in the medical field, you might be confident to draw the sample yourself.
I have a doe due in a month and only now am I able to feel her kids kicking. You can't feed kids on the left side of the abdomen, because of the rumen. If you really want to feel, you need your hands to be on the belly right in front of the udder, and on her right side. It might take some time, so you need to be patient. You can sometimes gently jiggle their tummy a little to 'wake' the kids up. Gets them moving so you can feel them.
I was just talking to my friend about bio tracking , I think I'm gonna go that route and do bio tracking .
But i say false pregnancy bc she has days where she looks big and then she may have a day or two where she doesn't look big .
Unless you have reason to believe she can't conceive or the buck was infertile, I would imagine she's bred. When is her earliest due date?
