I have a Doe in the process of kidding. This will be her second set of kids. I got to the barn around 9:30 and she had a water bag hanging out and was just wandering around. I went into check, afraid she may have been at it awhile. There is plenty of room in the pelvis and birth canal, my fist and past my wrist fit fine, but her cervix feels about ½ to ¾ dialated. Also the kid is presented correctly; both feet and nose are there. I left her to be and went about my normal routine. I came back to her about a half an hour later and there is no progress. The doe is just wandering around chewing her cud and talking to the other kids. She acts more like a doe thinking about kidding not one who is actively doing so. She only pushes every few minutes and it seems mild; Unless of course my hand is in there. Should I do anything or should I wait longer? Did I jump the gun?
