Yesterday one of my does kidded but unfortunately they didn't survive. I purchased her bred (was supposed to be October) the owner wasn't sure on breeding dates because the buck had a limp so didn't know if he was getting the job done. The baby looked full term? But I'm kind of a noob at telling. The baby had its teeth for sure. The other baby was a mummy, at least that's the term I'm familiar with from raising pigs. It was a skeleton with sludge on it. Momma bagged up and produced milk. She let me drain it a bit to relieve the pressure. She kept licking the dead baby and stand it near it though. Shes still bleating and crying. I think she's depressed. I reached inside and didn't feel any other kids. She cleaned. So I assume she's okay. She does have some brownish discharge today. Temp is 103.7. I've seen websites say the normal range is up to 103, 103.5 or 104 so I'm not sure which to believe. Im not sure if the baby was alive when it came out or not. She had it before we woke up that morning. I was checking her ligaments the day before and they seemed softish, but not as soft as her penmate (who was also bred around the same time). Never saw her mucus plug go either. It didn't seem like she liked off any of the mucus from the babies nose so maybe it suffocated. It wasn't until after she passed the mummy that she started licking the first baby. If her penmate has dead babies too I'll send it in for necropsy. ---------- Questions 1. Is a temp of 103.7 too high? I do have medicine on hand. 2. Are mummies a cause for concern? Or do they just happen sonetimes? 3. Anything so can do to help her be more comfortable?
