So my nubian doe gave birth to two kids, aboy and a girl, almost three weeks ago. She shouldn't have been bred, it was accidental, because her udder and teats are really bad. They hang between her legs and are only maybe 2-3 inches off of the ground. The kids had a very difficult time learning how to nurse, it took them about 10 days to catch on....leaving me to go out there every 4 hours to pick up a teat so they could find them. They did catch on but will only nurse off of one of them, leaving the lower one untouched. I've been milking that one side twice a day and they've been keeping the other side completely empty. The side I milk had blood in it for the first two days, I tested it for mastitis and it came back negative. The blood is now gone and the doe seems happy but those kids just turn up their noses at the teat when I offer it to them. My question is, can two growing kids (half nubian/ half boer) get enough nourishment from just one side? Should I be offering them some of the milk I collect via bottle (they won't take a bottle for anything). That doe is officially retired, I don't own any bucks so there will be no more accidents here. Can you imagine carrying those things around?
