Anyone have a Boer goat have quints? I couldn’t believe our doe had 5 bucklings last night.
Omg that is crazy! Poor momma lol
Wow! A most I've had in my herd in quads but another Boer breeder here in CT did have quints born this year.
How were the birth weights on all of them? Be sure to weigh daily and introduce the bottle to all five today so they learn it early!
They were 7,7,8,9, and 10. We pulled three of them to bottle feed. Mom is a doing well and we’ll be watching weight gain.
Wow can't believe those weights! Keep up the hard work! Would love to see photos
Man that's a lot of babies. Yes, we would love to see pictures.
Well congratulations on hitting the baby jackpot...How many are does?
I’d also love to see pics.
Awwww So cute!
I had my first ever quints this year but 3 were DOA :/ as sad as it was I feel very blessed I got 2 live babies. So thrilled to see all yours made it
Congratulations! That is awesome! I have not heard of boer.quints before! The doe must have been huge! Those are great weights for any.newborn! Good job!
Wow, you have your hands full.
That's incredible! Having FIVE at once and all full-sized is amazing! Your poor doe. I'll bet she's happy not to be toting that lot around any more!
Wowwww! All boys of course lol. I hope our goats never have that many at once. That’s a whole lotta goat for momma to be carrying. Glad everyone is healthy so far.
Seriously, 41 pounds of kids not including the amniotic fluid! That's insane!
All boys???!!!! That's crazy! Does this doe normally have large litters? Cause that's what this is.....a litter!
Wow, congratulations! That’s amazing!
So glad they are all healthy sized!
Congrats! We had two sets of quints this past year but I think they’re much more common in NDs than boers. Good luck with them!
She really wasn’t much larger than last year when she had triplets (about 10lbs each) so that’s what I was expecting again for her second kidding. She’s always good about eating minerals, but the last month I was constantly putting more out for her. I had her on 2 lbs of feed the last month and she still lost a little weight so I thought maybe quads. She is very thin now, eating a little feed and lots of good hay so we’ll make sure she gets some extra love. I’ll post a before and after pic.
Got a pic of all before the bottle babies leave later today.
