    I dont want to start a false alarm, but I think Fiji is acting like she might be in labor!!! Ive seen her licking her side as well as rolling & stretching her head & neck all the way out & generally acting uncomfortable.

    ETA: It looks likes she has settled down now [​IMG]. She really had me going for a bit!

    LOL! My girls have been having a lot of Braxton Hicks, too, but mine are first fresheners and still have little udders, so I haven't been fooled yet!

    I just loaded the cam, I see what you mean! They do look like they're in labor to me! Hopefully it will happen today! They both look like they are panting quite rapidly, and they keep moving and shifting around. I think this may be it! I wanna see some babies!

    no real change in the girls this morning. seriously. today is the earliest my other goats could go, so now its incredibly possible for all 5 does to go at the same time.

    then i have 3 other does that are just starting to bag.. GAH!

    and laceys bag just gets bigger. soon ill have to start bringing her in at night and fiji and skye will have to be in the aisle way of the barn! ACKK!
