    I am semi new to goats , we have had our 3 goats for almost over a year now and one of my female goats (Have 2 and 1 male who was banded) is making a weird sound for the past week or so, mostly when she lays down, she is always running around , and playing with the others, ect as they always do. I just never have heard her make this noise before. its like a sound of a fly buzzing around or so. I took a video and posted it at the link below.

    Is she pregnant? I had a couple does (mom and daughter that were Nubian Boer crosses) who I always knew as soon as they were preggers. They would make this sound whenever they laid down. If not pregnant, some goats make the sound when they are really relaxed laying in the sun, etc.

    I don't know how to say this without just saying it, lol. Does he still have testicles? If he has been banded, he won't have them anymore.

    Also, if he has testicles but they are just smaller than normal, it may be that he had a burdizzo used on him. It leaves the sack, just crushes the blood vessels and cords that run into the sack.

    Banded?? Burdizo
    Please explain these things to a new goat like me

    What are all the. Signs of being pregnant
    Mant. I have Cameroon Pygmy goats and anther pair of mini goats as they are called here in Bulgaria ,quite long hair and much thinner

    I bought the Cameron's and the guy said she may be pregnant ,,but she is getting big like a lump each side ,,but as a new goaty I am unsure

    The little goats are about a year and he is trying to mount her
    I have two pair so should I put the boys in there own pen now??

    I am worried about the Cameron as he is still harassing her and they end up head butting ,only once not a full fight ,,,my mini goat girl is extra friendly to me do I assume she is in season :rolleyes:

    Sorry to be a knob but I only bought them for my grandkids to play with but I love em
