How do I tell how far along the does are?? : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

My mom had run her buck in with the does for about 5 months and sure enough two of the does are pregnant. Cookie is a first time kidder and Anibelle has had six other pregnancys each time kidding twins. Cookie's bag started filling out about a month ago and is now moderatly full but Anibelle's bag is smaller, however her teats are fuller than Cookies. How do I tell when to expect them ti kid? I have no idea! Thanks!

We try to watch breeding dates. The vulva should become pink and puffy. The udder should show some sighn, but all doe's are diffrent.We have one doe that we miss BADLY every time.
