Is your Boer, Nigerian Dwarf or Mini Nubian Does pregnant and expecting baby goats? Have you ever heard of the Doe Code? If not this is a must read!
The doe's secret code of honor is as old as goats themselves and is the species best kept secret. No doe shall ever kid before its time. (Its time being determined by the following factors):
1- No goat kid shall be born until total chaos has been reached by all involved humans. Your owner's house must be a wreck, their family hungry and desperate for clean clothes, and their social life nonexistent.
2- "Midwives" must reach the babbling fool status before you kid out. Bloodshot eyes, tangled hair and the inability to form a sentence mean the time is getting close.
3- For every bell, beeper, camera or whistle they attach to you, kidding must be delayed by at least one day for each item. If they use an audio monitor, one good yell per hour will keep things interesting and ensure no one is sleeping.
