    This was a first for us! Molly, my doe from Echo Hill's, gave us quintuplets this year - 4 bucks and 1 doeling. She has had triplets her two other freshenings. Molly was bred to Echo Hill's Ulysses S. Grant *B. The kids were all beautiful. We lost the doeling and one of the bucklings. The three remaining bucklings are doing GREAT. We are keeping one of them and the other two are going off to breeding homes soon.

    Here are some pictures...
    The doeling:

    Thanks everyone! This was a first for us. We were also surprised by our first set of SEXTUPLETS a few days before Molly had her quints. That was quite the shock!!! Here's a link to the thread on the sextuplets: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=8130
