So my nigerian dwarf doe is due to kid this week and i just picked up a bag of alfalfa pellets, I've been reading formulas on how much to give her and all the post have the amounts in pounds, can someone please convert these to cups, how many cups should i give her when she kids? I gave her a 1/4 a cup this morning but im sure that isn't enough .

I use a 16oz Daisy sour cream cup and I give my does a full scoop daily along with free choice alfalfa hay. I also provide a 6oz yogurt cup of grain once a day as well as free choice minerals, kelp and red raspberry leaves, (small handful daily). Then once they’ve kidded I up the grain to meet their production needs

I usually add about a cup or 2 of alfalfa pellets, but I don't want to over feed that! I have been giving to my doe that just gave birth for the extra calcium and protein
