    Ok, this is an odd question but has anyone ever had this problem? I have a FF who had triplets on Mar 17, they are fat and growing well but I know she has them on some kind of schedule LOL, and when she squats to pee, they take advantage of the situation and attack her to nurse, pushing her udder up and back, so she pees on it! She is getting yucky and stained on her whole back end, I was going to leave the 2 doelings with her for a while( she had 2 does and a buck) but now I am getting discusted and probably take them all off her VERY soon, any suggestions?

    so the kids will be 8 weeks in a couple days (the 12th) I would remove them from mom at least for most of the day once they are 8 weeks old so mom can have a break

    Yep...separate them, they are definately old enough to be without mom and since they are smart enough to "get her while she's down" so to speak the coniving brats being away from her will give her the break Stacey mentioned.
