2017 Kidding Dates
Rainbow Ridge Farms
Watching a baby come into this world is an amazing experience! We invite you to join us in this wonderful experience.
We breed award-winning dairy goats and we are very active in 4-H. We work with numerous kids from town and provide them with a goat to care for and the opportunity to show that goat at county fair and other shows. Part of their 4-H experience is working on the farm and being there to help their goat deliver a baby. Many of our guests over the years have joined us in the barn too. Some frequently asked questions are “When are babies going to be born?”, “Can I watch?”, “Will you wake us up if it happens in the middle of the night?”, “Can I help?” YES, YOU CAN! The goats usually kid around 150 days gestation, and since we know when our goats were bred, we can estimate their due dates within about 5 days. The chart below has confirmed pregnancies and approximate due dates. Remember, they can kid (that’s what it’s called) anytime 5 days before or 5 days after! It keeps us on our toes!
