Cherry kidded today.

One did not make it :(

The other is a little girl. Our last seven babies have been white, so I am over the moon with her pretty little features. She has a bit of a dirty face in the photo I am attaching.

I was going to move the deceased kid but I have not as yet. Normally I am okay with this kind of thing, but today I feel like I could be sick :sick:

Congrats! She's beautiful! I'm sorry for your loss though, do you have anyone else that can move the other kid? You should get it out ASAP before it gives something unwanted to mama or the baby. Good luck!

Thanks all. My partner came home to help me with the other kid, thankfully.

Since this post two more kids have been born (different mothers) so we are pretty worn out! I was expecting one but the other was very much a surprise baby.

I'm not sure to be honest :( I'd estimate I missed the birth by an hour or so - so the first I saw of it was the dead kid. Took me a few moments to notice the live one. Kicking myself that I missed it.

She is soooo cute...

However, she's having watery yellow scours. Going to check if it's continuing shortly and see what I can do.
