    I do think it's more of a random thing Ashley, all of my girls are twins or a triplet,and 2 of them had a single for their FF, and 3 of them had twins.....as far as the due date" well, I ad my Angel deliver hers at exactly 145 days....so even the FF can keep us guessing with the what and when.

    Yeah, I agree with everyone. It varies. I think a lot of them time the buck kind of determines due dates. . . . no proof of this but I see similarities in due dates when a bunch of does are bred to the same buck. Our buck, Royal Blue's kids seem to come on day 148 so far, what we've noticed.

    FF can have all sorts. We've had some with singles, twins, triplets, and even quads. I think twins are pretty common though with ff.

    I agree with Toth, all does are different but ours seem to go a couple days before their due date but that is usually how it is with all our does here though, ours mostly give us a single but sometimes they will have twins or triplets.

    Hmm.. interesting. :) I just wondered what to expect,we should have a 2 week spring break in April,which hopefully she will be due about the same time,give or take a week,and it'd be awesome if she had them while I was still on break.

    well, there really is no "rule" to FF.

    However most of my FF have always given me a single - except for 1. She snuck in triplets on me. I am glad that I had her ultrasounded - and knew that there were twins - but was not expecting triplets at all!!!

    Good luck!

    My FF had a single, and was aright around say 150. I was very surprised!
