    We have a Nubian doe that belongs to my son. She will be a FF this year. We have never kided here before.

    Our worry is she comes from a litter of 6. 2 bucks, 3 does and a hamaphidite. (Sp?) What are the chances as a FF she could have any where this many? Its starting to give me nightmares. :gulp:

    :D I think she'll be fine. Usually Nubians have singletons or twins as FFs. It's really rare for those standards to give birth to more than two or three the first time. :D so i'd relax.

    a single to twins is normal for FF in the standard breeds

    Do they gain amounts of babies with each freshening?
