    Feta did really great. .. just a few pushes and that big boy was out, with the little girl on his heels... and mom has been really attentive... lick, lick, lick, lick....
    No nursing yet... I've tried to connect the two several times but he seems to just get it in his mouth and start to suck, and then goes to sleep. The plugs are removed, so I'll just keep trying.
    When should I milk her and syringe? I mean how long should I wait?
    Thanks for all your good wishes!

    Look at the party colors! Makes me want nigis because those little babies are just adorable. Sorry to hear about your little doeling. :(
    I'm not the goat expert, especially with new kids, but I'd probably give him a couple hours to nurse before I tubed fed him?? I'd for sure get him to eat tonight, though. Hopefully he will figure it out soon. Congratulations!! :thumb:

    Stillborns just happen sometimes. It really stinks, but congrats on the little boy. Such a gorgeous buckskin! My biggest concern is always that mamma is alright, so congrats on a healthy delivery for Feta!
