This morning when I went to feed the girls, they both called to me and I opened the pen and let them out. I put grain in the food bowl and Maggie put her two front feet on the stand and started to eat the grain through the head hole thing. Enough! I lifted her back side up and got her on the stand and she ate the rest of her grain on the stand. ( Not as easy as it sounds, she is heavy and was wiggly)
Juju went outside and was nibbling on grass and stuff. I put her in the pen, gave them fresh warm water as it's 15 at the house this am. When Maggie was done I put her in the goat yard and got Juju, Juju showed no interest in the grain. I put the bpwl of grain right in front of her and she turned her head and walked away. I left the bowl with her, came back in a few minutes and she still had not touched her grain.
Is she sulking cause I let Maggie eat first? I'm pretty sure that Juju is the queen goat.
Is it because it's cold and she just wants it to be spring like we all do? Maybe she is tired of being preggers and just wants that kid out?
It has not been a year yet since I have had the goats, and this is my first time dealing with pregnant goats. I don't know what in normal. I have been reading my goat books and I'm working myself into a tizzy. Like in the movie Gone with the Wind, "I don't know nothing about birthing no babies!"
When I get home tonight I will see how she acts. I hope that she is just sulking and not something more.
