    Last year we had a first time mom not take care of her kid so we gave her 1 more chance this year she had triplets (lost 1) and is taking care of them she also decided that she would help my other doe (who also had triplets and all survived) by feeding one of her kids this morning I guess I'll be keeping her

    Martini is also raising 5 kids. I was worried about her feeding triplets but she feeds Zoey's kids also.

    Definitely keepers! We have a FF that was trying to decide if she wanted to nurse other babies, but I was worried since she had such a strange, and difficult birth that it would be too much for her, so I purposely tried to keep her away from all of the other babies a few extra days. I think if I hadn't she would have claimed a 2nd baby to raise lol
