    My husband got this lil pygmy goat 2 month ago and they told us she is pregnant, but we are not really sure. She should delivery the kids at the beginning of January.

    What do you think? Is she pregnant or not?

    She doesn't look pregnant to me, but I've been fooled before.

    thanks cassie for your answer. I'm not sure. I say she is not pregnant, my husband said she is. For me she looks to "small" to be pregnant this far! but she is our first pregnant goat so....

    Goats don't read the books. I've been fooled more than once. Try standing behind her and clasping your hands under her belly just in front of the udder. Then push up sharply. You should be able to feel the kids, if there are any, when they come down. They will feel like a hard mass. There should also be some udder development particularly at the top.
