Hi All! We just had a mama kid one baby girl. We had a wether but we had to rehome him. :(.

at what point is it ok to add in more babies? We are wanting to purchase some doelings but wasn’t sure how the Mama would react.

Should they be weaned or can they be bottle fed?
Thanks!

Actually, the mama may be very protective of her little one. Make sure babies come in at least a pair and be able to get away from the mature doe. It does depend on the doe, some are nasty, and some are not too bad. But I don't take chances. Be there to watch after your quanrantine period, and make sure babies know where they can safely get away from the mature doe.
