greenspun.com : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

Curious, have any of you had doe kids with testes?? I have a pair of twin does out of a nice milking doe, both kids were born with enlarged clitoris and now at 3 months they appear to have two testes or lumps back behind where their nipples are and before their obvious female external genatilia, same area where a billy would have a scrotum. these have no scrotal sac, but very noticable knots. coutd these be freemartins? they look feminine other than these lumps. One does spray weird when she urinates, it sprays straight out behind her not like our other goats. any help please!!!

They are hermaphrodites. You should culll them, and do not repeat the brreedign that produced them. Was either parent naturally polled (hornless)?
