So the twin doelings are doing great. This morning, however, I noticed mom wouldn't let them eat when I went to feed her. As soon as they butt her udder or grab a nipple she sidesteps away or kicks at them. I thought that maybe they had already eaten quite a bit and she was just telling them to back off for a bit. I put them out in an outdoor pen today for the first time and mom still wouldn't let them eat (around 3 o'clock). I felt her udder and it seemed a bit small compared to a few days ago. Mom is getting fed and watered plenty. Is this normal by the time they are a week old? That mom would be refusing to let them eat for even a small amount of time? They are very active and jumping around like crazy, and I just noticed this today. I'll keep an eye on them and see if mom is having problems producing or if she keeps being a pain in the butt with them. Just wondering... I can always bottle feed but would prefer not to.
