    I had a boer doe give birth last week to triplets , my 1st time . I have been worried that mom was not going to be able to feed all 3. I weighed them today and I am happy to say that they have put on 4 lbs . They will be a week old tomorrow . I will keep a close eye on them to make sure mom can keep up with the demand ,but for now I am happy with their gain.

    Thats great! A 4# weight gain within the week is awesome....I'd be worried about mom losing weight with feeding those lil' piggies...LOL
