Default Question on due date

If female conceived on Feb 4 what is her due date. It's 59-63 days later correct?

Was she bred on Feb 4? Why do you think that's conception date? They don't conceive on breeding date.

When did she ovulate? I usually count 63 days from second breeding and then start taking their temperature at 57 days.

63 days from the day of ovulation.

She will probably be due in 1-2 week of April. But, if you did not do a progesterone test for the exact date of ovulation, then you will need to measure temperature. Generally twice per day at the same times, keep a chart.

What I find is that they drop temperature gradually, from 101.6 say to 99.3 or so, and then within 12 hours, they will dip usually down around 98 degrees (I am measuring with a cheap digital thermometer so accuracy may not be the greatest but what you are looking for is the rate of change.) Usually if they drop a degree, down below 99 in 12 hours, then they will whelp within 24 hours.

Of course, all bitches are different. Good luck.
