Went to my mom's to feed this morning, my doe Boer goat had two little hooves sticking out, I knew she was due any day, but showed no signs last night. I felt around and thought head was stuck, pulled some then realized it was the back legs-Breech! once I got them out far enough, I grabbed on and pulled, beautiful little doe, stillborn. From momma's size, I knew there was two so we wait. About an hour later, she starts into heavy contractions, but nothing is happening. I reach up in there and checked, more hooves coming out so I kind of helped them along. Once they got far enough out, it was stuck. Check again, rear legs, another breech, beautiful buck. Darn it all, lost them both. my wife just hceked her at 1pm said she is still having labor, I figured it was the after birth, but now I wonder if it's a third.
Sucks, we have 100% attrition rate, she was the only doe we had pregnant. Told wife, done with breeding, our track record is on the loss side since we got in to goats 6 yrs ago.
We will just buy our market animals from now on.
