When I first got my goats I bought pygmys that were pregnant. I had no idea what labor looked like, and missed the births from both goats. Later, I bought my first nigerian dwarf goat and wanted to be there for the birth of her babies. I searched and searched for videos showing behavior leading up to hard labor, but could find very little. Most videos were too dark to see much, or the camera kept hopping all over the place. Because of this, I thought that if I could catch my goat at the right time I would film her for others.
I did edit out most of the early labor since it stretched out for around an hour before Cin’s water broke. You will see segments of early labor, just understand that it can last a fairly long time with little action. After that is the birth of the first two kids. A third surprised us as Cin stood nursing, and I think it surprised her too! It was the runt and just dropped out and we had the camera off thinking she was finished. I have also included some clips a few hours after birth to two days after. I hope this helps many new goat owners!
