As long as you are completely available to your does...they won't kid. The secret is to fill your schedule with "unavailable times"...the doe will seize the first opportunity! We have been waiting for our Saanen doe with great expectations since March 15th...16th...17th...18th...any day except March 21st, and especially not at 1 o'clock, because that is when my daughter's 7th birthday party is planned. At 1:05, the last party guest arrived...and when does she kid??? 1:15. Twin girls. If that wasn't enough party fun for the city girls at the farm - in the pen of Silkies (in the living room) that our daughter got for her birthday - a roo, a hen, and two chicks...the hen laid an egg during the party - complete with triumphant cackle!
