    Happy kidding, Cricket!
    I’m guessing triplets. 2 girls and a boy.

    Rain, It's horrible isn't it! I hope you have a nice dry Kidding pen. When Tonks had her trips we got stuck in the doe barn with lightning, torrential rain, marble sized hail and 50mph winds when it was finally finished we had been stuck in there for a couple hours. Glad we keep extra drinks and stools around just in case.
    Happy Kidding! Cricket is a beauty and I can't wait to see her kids!

    Oh no! was that his year? That storm blew my horse trailer into our fence!
    I have a dog kennel in the barn with savings in it. I used this one for delta.
    Usually, i have a stall in the barn, that is split in half with a gate in the middle, but i just had Archie in there who had BP worms. and I have to let that rest for a while. I also have one due on the 21st, which means im gonna have to kick cricket out FAST! I guess breeding far apart this year worked out!

    Yes, it was about 3weeks or so ago. A mini fridge sounds like a smart idea ;)
    I just have Drom left and hopefully then I can dismantle the pens and just let everyone in an open area but that last big storm took out fencing so before I can let the littles in the pasture I need to do repairs...SO, I really need the rain to stop already.
    I hope Cricket waits for a break in the weather for you.

    I didnt get on the web yesterday because our internet is SOO SLOW
    Her ligaments are still "pencils" Today is day 141!!! Udder seems a tiny bit fuller, but not noticeable from just looking. She had the tiniest amount of white goo yesterday, but it is gone today. It would be awesome if she had Easter babies for her first year! Her momma goes QUICK when she has her babies. Last year, i woke up, she had a LOT of goo, went back out there she was already pushing with a little nose and feet peaking out. Hopefully cricket treats me a little better than that!

    She has a runny nose and a cough right now, because it went from like 80 degrees to the high being 50 degrees yesterday. Everybody does :(

    I was out of my mind thinking there would be Vitamin C gummies on the shelves right now (doh)

    I am loading everybody with garlic right now, and it seems to help with the cough, but the snotty noses are still there
    I have them out of their pens, grazing around the pasture fences to help mow them down, and poor cricket is waddlin out there:imok:

    Garlic is great! I learned on here from @Moers kiko boars, for snotty noses, wipe nose, use baby snot bulb to clean, then put one drop of VetRx in each nostril. Good luck.

    Oh, update on cricket!!
    The goats have been out almost all day, and I am hoping that having her walk around so much will get her to go faster. We’ll see!!!
    I am soo excited for these babies; sadly I will probably not be keeping any of them, bcecause I am trying to work my herd up to registered goats, and they can be by cricket isn’t, but I know they eye will I’ll be SUPER cute!!

    You can get vet RX at tractor supply, atwoods or even petsmart. They have it for lots of different species but it's all the same thing.
