Default twins how much time between them

Well Nanny after waiting all day at 5:15 pm gave us a Carmal baby girl YAH! she has always had twins, last year they were 7 min apart it is 8:21 pm and still nothing... she looks like she is busying but nothing like before and she has passed a after birth..

SO WHAT NOW?

if she is restless, ie sitting down, standing up, sitting down, standing up, pushing, looking uncomfortable etc. I would strongly suggest you put your hand in there and feel for another kid.

if she looks settled, is happily standing and looking after the kid, then I'd say you've got a singleton.

I agree with keren. If she's not straining or anything i'd say that's it. Was the baby a pretty good size or small? If it's pretty small then she very well might have another in there. Twins usually come within 10 min. apart, but this one could be different.

Oh...just read that she has passed the after birth....I'm pretty confident she's done then. The after birth is just as it sounds... after birth, although I have heard where there are 2 afterbirths.

Try bouncing her. lock your finger together under her belly, right in front of her udder and pull up a couple times. You should be able to feel if there is another kid in there.

Is she restless like Allison just said?

She is just laying there panting a little... She cleaned the kid very well and then we took it in the house BECAUSE we are bottle feeding her because of a few of our goat had CL they have been taken care of, but I do not want to take any chances with this one... all the rest of the gaots except the Mom and our one baby from April (he had his first shot still needs his second one) have had the Case Back shot but still want to be on the safe side....

If there is only one I am shocked she has always had twins, I like twins better they keep each other company

OH well I will go do the bounce thing and am waiting for a call from a neighbor who has raised Nigerians (SP) for about 20 yrs

Thank you All

Donna B

Not necessarily. I USED to think that if they'd passed the afterbirth they were done.

I had a doe change my mind about that theory though. She dropped twin boys, then the placenta not a problem whatsoever.

In the morning she was sick as a dog, with a third kid wedged in the pelvis, dead, the kid's mouth had come open (as they do when they die) and the teeth had ruptured the uterus and bowel, and she had to be euthanased.

From then, I do not hesitate to put my hand in and check. Chances are you will save lives more often than you will do any harm.

just read your post, we posted at the same time

if she is just laying there I would definitely check her internally for another kid. I have found that mostly if they are finished, they will stand up and stand over the baby for a long time without sitting down again. And when they sit down it usually means there is more

Yeah, I agree with keren, at this point with her still panting I would probably go in too.
