You know, I’m not sure if she has rejected them or not. As long as she is preoccupied with food then she couldn’t care less if they nurse. But after holding her last night they were acting completely normal just like all the other kids, jumping and playing, this morning. So this morning I held her again and they sucked her dry. Yesterday their bellies were empty.Are you sure they've been rejected? Are their tummies empty? Have they lost any weight (that is if you knew their weight before).
I saw what I thought was rejection behavior from my doe Bella with her kids at a certain age and all it turned out to be was they were trying to drink from her too often and she was just saying no. She would let them drink, but not all the time. That's actually a good trait to have it a doe.
Definitely check their teeth. I think that may have had something to do with Prim rejecting her buckling, Yuma, but I found that out too late.
Their birth weight was 8.40 lbs and 7.00 lbs. At 1 wk old they were 10.65 lbs and 9.95 lbs. I’ll weigh them again and see. But Marianne’s kids last year didn’t grow as well as the others either, so it might be a genetic problem.Weigh them daily with a scale that weighs in pounds and ounces or pounds and tenths of pounds.
