    Betty (our third out of five) kidded this afternoon. :leap: :cool: Finally I got to see one and it was amazing. But, would you believe - another buckling :kidblue: - third in a row! I am loving the surprise of colours coming out of does that are all mostly white. It's so cool. Now I know for sure I am addicted. :)

    BTW who says that twins are the most common - all singles so far here (all :kidblue: too :hair: ).
    The colour of the pics is a bit off because I took them with my camera phone and it is a wet and rainy Spring day here.
    Still with back leg inside, she gave birth sitting down.

    congrats - beautiful big boy :)

    Singles are not uncommon with first timers and for other reasons. Did you own the does when bred?

    What breed(s) is the baby? I have one that looks so similar to it, and I have no idea what he is :D

    I wish I knew! The parents were sold to us as Boer cross. A few people have suggested the cross is Saanen.

    I love his color! Congrats on getting to see your first kidding! BTW, your doe kinda looks like mine, and I was told she is possibly a kiko cross. She's white too <her name is Snow White heh>.
