    Well I figured I would put squeaks and celia's thread together. Celia is on day 104 she had triplets last year, so we will see for this year. She is bred to a younger buck so might play a role in that.

    :whatgoat: Question-if you breed an older, proven doe to a young buck does it yield more or less kids? I noticed you mentioned that in the post...just wondering!

    I dont think buck age has much to do with the number of kids a doe has.

    I have heard and read that breeding a doe to a younger buck could produce less kids. But I dont know this to be a fact. I will find out though cause two of my bucks this year are under a year old. And thanks

    The buck has no bearing whatsoever on the number of kids that a doe has as far as I know. How many kids she has depends on how many eggs she released when she ovulated. The buck's sperm can only fertilize as many eggs as there are available at the time of breeding. That is the entire philosophy behind "flushing" a doe before breeding season--to get her to release more eggs.

    Such pretty girls!!

    I hope they give you what you want :pray:


    The young buck thing is more for sex of kids I think....at least with my experience, 2 of my bucks that bred my does before they were a year old sired more doelings, the other 2 sired more bucklings.

    My oldest buck now is Hank and as of Feb 2008 at 4 yrs old(now 6yrs)he had sired 19 does and 10 bucks :greengrin:

    I have an untrained eye, but she looks just as pudgy as my babies. I think she's keeping it a good secret though. lol

    Here is Celia she is on 124 today. She is getting her udder in and looking real nice.

    I thought Squeak was pregnant and she would be on 123 but she just doesnt look like it to me. She has no udder coming in and just doesnt seem to be putting on any weight. The weird thing is I havnt seen her come back into heat so I dont know. I guess if she kids it will be a surprise. :)
