    Congrats on the new babies...

    give Bo-se shot .... the kid is selenium deficient.

    Also if the kid isn't chilled give it some colostrum in a syringe...

    can you take a temp? If he is under 100 degree's ...it is hypothermia =and the temp needs to come up.... don't feed the baby until the temp is at least 100 degree's.....

    if hes chilled put him in a plastic bag (head out of course) and submerge the bag in warm water. this will raise his core temp.

    nutri drench will help, bo-se would be good

    congrats on the 6 kids wow!

    for weak kids you should give a mixture of whiskey, karo syrup and coffee this gives them a boost (whiskey is optional)

    Wow, that a lot! Congrats on the new "herd." :leap:

    Yep, try giving Bo-Se and coffee, karo, whiskey mixture to give them a boost. Make sure their temps are above 100 before giving milk.

    Its the whiskey, karo syrup and coffee, I was trying to think of last night. And with all the activity, it just wouldn't come to me. I gave the lil guy a touch of molasses from my finger. And they all got nutra drench and some nursing from Olivia. Plus they got some bottle, all except the biggest boy, who was last born, breech, presenting with his rear. I had to plull his rear legs forward to get him out and he is a thriving little piggy. (big piggy. lol) I am going to the barn now and check on them.
    thanks again
