    Here's a situation I haven't dealt with before. A set of quads born in the middle of the night, 3 before midnight and 1 after. One kidding on 2 different days lol.
    Do I give them their real birthday or put them all on the first day?

    You give them their real birthdate! It can happen that way where siblings are born minutes apart, but have two different birthdays. I've seen some at shows who got to be in two different classes as a result. I always secretly hoped one of my does would do that, but they preferred daytime kidding which was fine with me!

    Give the date, in which they were born.

    I've had that happen, and honestly, I just put them all on the same day, usually when the 1st one was born I go by that date, unless there are triplets and 2 are born after midnight, then I go with 2nd date. I'd think stating 2 different dates could raise questions? But again I've never put different dates.

    I do as Hoosier does and date all the same day. Less confusion
