Hello everyone, I found this great website because of an awful situation. I have 1 wether and 1 doe who are both 7 months. I bought my doe about 2 months ago not knowing that she could've been bred. I just thought that she was in heat. Now I know better. 2 weeks ago I went out to feed the goats in the morning as I always do and I noticed Daisy had a bloody backside. I immediately ran to the goat shed. There were 2 half frozen babies just laying there. 1 was pretty dried off and the other was still really wet. It was about 20 degrees outside and snow on the ground, at least Daisy was smart enough to have the kids in the shed. I ran the kids in the house an put them in front of a heater. The wet kid sounded like it still had fluid in its lungs so I got my daughters booger sucker and sucked the fluid out. After about 8 hours I finally got them to the point where they could stand on their own and sucking on Daisy. I even milked colostrum from Daisy to make sure they were getting what they needed because they were so weak. Once they were standing, sucking, pooping and peeing on their own I moved them out of my kitchen and back out to the goat shed along with their mom. I gave them a heat lamp just to make sure they warm enough. I would go out to the shed and check on them every 2 hours. Everything was looking good. On the third night I decided that they were doing so well and Daisy's milk was coming in that they didn't need me to babysit them anymore. All night I had this bad feeling for some reason. When I woke up the next morning I ran out to check on them and both of the kids were dead. I can't begin to explain how upset I was and still am. I cried for 3 days straight. When I think about it now it still brings me to tears. I know that everything happens for a reason it's just too bad that mother nature can seem so cruel sometimes. So that's the story of what brought me to this great website. I know that I will have a bazillion questions that you guys have answered before and I hope you don't get tired of answering mine. On a better note I'm going to pick up a Pygmy doe who is bred to a Nygerian buck due in April. So I have a little time to prepare for kids. Here are pics of Daisy and Chester. Chester is the Pygmy and Daisy we think is a Pygmy/Nygerian cross. Here is a picture of Daisy and her kids.
