detecting pregnancy : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

i got a pygmy a few weeks ago, a rescue. i was told she was running with a buck fron november through the first of march. i can feel alot of movement on the right side of her flanks. her teats are alot fuller and has a small bag. last night her milk came in. is this a sure sign that she is pregnant? we have other pygmy doe's but never bred before.

Yes. If her bags are filling up, then she's most likely pregnant. Another shure sign is that a few weeks before kidding, her vulva will swell in preparation for kidding.
