Hi everyone, I had twin doelings born yesterday, less than 24 hours old yet. They have both nursed and seem ok with wagging tails. But this morning, both are covered in yellow sticky poop all down their bottoms and back legs. Mom didn't clean them so I've brought both in to get them cleaned up. Temp is 103.1. Is this meconium or should I be worried?

I don't know a lot about newborn kids, only went through it a few times, but I recall our newborn kid goats did the same and I attributed it to colostrum in the milk. Human newborns have similar kind of poop in the very beginning.
I sure hope it's normal. I remember that newborn meconium well when I had my own babies!
