I have no idea if any of the sheep are pregnant, can anyone tell me what the early signs are?

    I wish I knew–I feel sure some of your followers will. Punkin’s Patch blog would know for sure 🙂

    How about cranky, irritable, weepy/happy, irrational, prone to fighting?

  4. Sorry, I have no expertise in animal husbandry. Let us know if you find out.

    Honestly with mine, I just have a general idea when their lambing usually is, which is the beginning of March, so I just prepare because they are in with the ram. But I saw a great thing on a T.V. show called Victorian Farm, they squeezed the ewes teats and if there is wax in there it means they are getting ready to make milk for the lambs! I've never tried that, but I'm anxious to this year just to see if it works! I'm very familiar with the signs of pregger goats but sheep are more secretive 🙂

    Thanks for the comments, the only idea I have right now is too look to see it they begin to flesh out. I have been told that this doesn't work very well with first timers.

  7. I'm not sure what you mean by 'flesh out', that is a new term for me…but with my first timers, the very first thing I notice is that their vulva's are pinker than normal. Some don't develop an udder until a week or two before lambing. When is the first date they could lamb? Who is the girl on the left? I like her horns 🙂

    And I thought you were talking about you!

  9. I was just coming over here to give the exact same advice luckybunny did, and from the same source! Victorian Farm is wonderful!They didn't say if there was a time period for this, though.

    Shannon – She is Jeepers, the only non lamb of the bunch. Our sheep are too shy to ever let us get a good look at them, I guess I will have to rely on the calendar method.Grandpa – Nope, not me.Bookworm – I need to start watching!
