Here are the projected due dates for this kidding season:
The girls are spending a lot of time just laying around ...some of them moaning softly.
Holly is so full and round with babies that she usually sits up like in a dog-like posture. I'm sure she'll be glad for her delivery date to get here. She's due on the 12th.
Here's the post from last year showing the details of what I have to do to get the pens ready after a long summer of them standing idle. Getting the Kidding Pens Ready Yes, they looked almost as bad this year before I started cleaning the cobwebs and dust out.
I also have the Kidding Kit and stack of old clean towels ready for this year.
I hang the kidding kit and clean towels on a hook and the fencing at the end of the alley between the kidding pens. This keeps it out of the reach of the does, but within quick easy reach for me.

I've moved the first does due into the kidding pens. Now we're on "labor watch".

I think they're about as full as they can get and are anxiously waiting for delivery! What do you think?
I'm ready .... Let the games begin! I'll let you know as soon as we have babies!
