On April 30th, 2011, this beautiful suburban goat gave birth to two little kids. I had just dropped by to see goats born earlier this week, and the mamma just so happened to go into labor while I was there!
So I pulled out my video camera and started filming! The miracle of life!
After all was said and done, there were two healthy female kids, one delivered fully by the mother, the other needed a little extra help in the final stages.
I went inside to put my three kids down for naps at about 2:00pm. I checked the barn's surveillance camera to see if there was any action. The goat was lying down, but she wasn't making any sound, so I thought I would close my eyes for a few minutes. After a short while, I had a feeling I should check the camera again, and when I did at about 2:30 or so, I saw that Tiny was standing up, licking something small and white...I thought, surely she couldn't be licking a chicken that somehow flew in the barn (the goats and chicken aren't THAT good of friends!) So I RAN out as fast as I could, and saw these two darling little goats! Then...the unexpected happened just MINUTES later!! What a FUN surprise!!
This is the birth of Micaela and Merrimee, Carmen's twin doelings born Jan. 19, 2009. It's a good example of a normal goat birth. People have asked why we dry them off at birth -- because it's freezing, and the kids, which only weigh 2-3 pounds, would get hypothermia quickly if not dried completely. ARMCH Antiquity Oaks Carmen *D 1*M is a Nigerian dwarf goat and has earned her permanent championship in AGS, as well as her advanced registry milk star in both AGS and ADGA.

This video is of our goat named Brownie. She had twins, but all I got was the first (little boy). I had another nanny real close to birthing when all this was happening, went to check on her cause she was hollerin', and sure as the world missed the second (little girl) as she was being born...It was about 4-5 minutes that I was gone.. The whole birthing took about 25 minutes to get both babies on the ground...
Our doe, Sydney, is giving birth for the first time. She ended up having twins, a buck and a doeling. This is the buck being born in the video. This was the first time we got to watch one of our goats give birth last year.
