Katie just had twins. Buckling and doeling. Really hoping both are polled. May both be keepers! Their sire is the buck I had mite issues with and they're the only babies he's siring this kidding season. He's really nice so I'm really excited about these two.
Sprinkles kidded with quints (2 bucklings, 3 doelings) on Saturday. All are doing well, even the tiny one who I kept inside overnight to make sure she got enough to eat. Here is the baby pile from tonight.
Thanks! We’re at 13 right now. Planning on retaining 5 (2 bucklings, 3 doelings) and everyone else has deposits down on them already except for 2.
Sprinkles is getting irritated with 5 babies fighting over her udder so I’ve taught her 3 doelings to bottle feed. I’m having to milk her out when she’s not wanting them to nurse. The boys must be getting enough as they won’t take a bottle and are still growing like crazy.
