    I don't think she's very close based on how small her udder looks...but all that hair, LOL! Still, maybe a month?

    What day did you buy them? I mean, that at least gives you the last possible due date and you can go from there.

    Ah that picture you added looks far different from the walking picture...

    2-3 weeks, maybe less...will she let you feel her udder and check her ligaments?

    Without being able to get your hands on her you are probably going to just have to watch and wait!

    never, hahahahahaha, they make you wait you know. She looks like she could be anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple months still. Has she kidded before? With the udder the size it is if its her first kidding I owuld put her closer than later, if she has kidded before her udder can be that size earlier on. The hairy udder is pretty normal here, since I have pygmy goats they dont usually get theirs shaved. She looks very pygmy so keep an eye and her and be ready to help, though most pygmy cross generally do ok.
     
  10. Yes, her utter should be full and shiny. She may even paw the ground of her litter, sign of nest building. Her Vajj will leak a mucus and elongate. She may even make more goat noises to her impending labor to come.

    I hope this helps..
