    I would say single also but I have a doe that hardly ever looks pregnant and she always gives me twins because she is so long.

    could be twins.. i dunno i always go by a weight

    like.. bird was 62ish( its written down somewhere) before she was bred and two days ago (1month before her first due date) she is 81.. so i think twins on a normal size

    aurora is a ff and she weighed smoething like 56 before i bred her and she is now 79.. so im thinking twins for her as well

    but they could both surprise me and throw triplets. since they couls still have several months to go

    It just has to be a girl and I'll be happy. She hasn't come into heat once so I know she's bred... and she's starting to get an udder too, as well as her tummy's swollen and hard, so it ain't fat.
    no buckling. . . . . please.... :pray:

    sonrise. i got some pictures of my two due in late january/ early february for reference for you

    first is aurora

    shes not too wide across the top.. bout a foot and a half or so

    shes really deep though

    i have felt one head.. gotta feel for more when it stops raining.. she was a really big single kid so i'm hoping that by breeding her to my buck buddy, who has on average 2 pound kids produces smaller multiple kids

    so i think twins on her

    now for bird

    bird is a 4th freshener.

    the top picture i left my boots in for reference.. i wear a size 9 mens. so.. she's really wide

    i got two side pictures but shes really deep too

    she is due the same time as aurora and is bred to the same buck.. so she is probably carrying triplets.. but it could be twins because i've only felt two move


    if you cant see the pictures let me know.. i'll email them to you

    I see them. Thankyou. . . bird is such a pretty doe. :D. Okay, Saca's udder looks just about like aurora's right now. I should probably try checking for heartbeats... I think my grandpa has a stethescope....
