    Congrats!

    Some does are very vocal during labor and others will not hardly make a peep besides a grunt or groan.

    I only have 1 who really really hollers.

    Mine are usually standing within 10-20 minutes. Have you helped him/her to nurse?

    Did you mean 2.5 hours since birth?

    The kid should have been standing almost immediately. Has it nursed successfully?

    Did your doe have an selenium supplementation during pregnancy?

    I usually keep mine separated for a couple days, and then for about a week I still separate at night.
