    I milked the goats at 7pm, and checked everyone over once before I returned to the house. All was quiet. Came back out at 8pm to feed the bottle kids, and there was my ND doe Panda, laying with 3 cleaned, still wet kids......! As I scooped them up to get them into the warm house (temp here in NE Texas is 27 degrees.....brr!), I found a 4th baby off in the corner squooshed inside the pallet wall.
    Got them in the house, my BF is toweling them dry, and headed back out to attend to the tired momma..........heard more cries coming from the barn.........broke into a run at this point! There was Panda standing over a 5th tiny-but-oh-so-loud baby! Wowee! My first quintuplets!

    You can see them all in my Facebook album: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 ... b3fee6f8b8

    They are 2 weeks old now, and still in my bathroom! I promised myself that tomorrow I would fix them a pen...

    I pulled all the kids and have been bottlefeeding them. I wanted to make sure that they were getting enough, plusI had never milked Panda before and wanted to get her on the milkstring. And, I wanted to ensure that the kids were socialized and friendly.
