My birthing kit is packed and ready for action

Day 145 and counting.  I'm not sure of any exact due dates as I had Triumph here for two months.  But based upon the first date of exposure, the countdown starts now.  Normal gestation for a goat is 150 days, so I'm thinking sometime next week.  But there's no telling since I don't have an exact breeding date for each doe.  It could be a month from now.

Based upon belly size and more importantly udder appearance, I think Lulu will pop first followed closely by Nali.  Candy and Gretel, both first fresheners will most likely be a little later.  But udders have developed on both of them.  I'm especially excited to see that Candy's udder is looking good.

Little ones are coming!!!  Prepare for cuteness overload!!!

That would be the bare minimum. If I had to take a guess? 9 or 10 when it's all said and done.
