    Joyful Hearts Esther *D kidded with sextuplets!!! I can't believe it!! I knew she would have a lot because she was sonoed with 3+ but WOW! It was a had birth though. We had to go in because they were all tangled. :( I did not think the little ones were going to make it but they slept in my room.(don't tell my dad) :wink: :wink: Anyways I think they are going to be very nice. Great length of body nice rumps, and wide escutcheon. Though it can be hard to tell on newborns. Overall I am very happy!! They are all doing great! :wahoo:

    Fantastic you had six and they all are alive! Seems like it is pretty common to lose some of them once you get over four. So you all did great!

    The buck is JoyfulHearts JF Cavalier *S. He is a nice match for Esther because he provides her with a little more depth and he has a very wide escutcheon. I am very pleased with the breeding! :dance:

    Oh I am definently good with twins or Trips. Anything after that is stressful, One of my girls had quads once and was able to feed all of them, but it was stressful, but hey its definently fun when you have that many :)

    Holy Moly. 6?? I can't even imagine. I've never had more than triplets. Triplets were actually fun as I got to do something supplemental bottle feeding. My humans kids loved that! My 5 year old keeps asking when the bottle babies are coming this year, lol

    So many.... I never want that many! Lol. I have one that has quads every year but supposedly has an easy time of it (just bought her) so we will see how that goes. I like twins. They are easy, I have never had birthing problems with them and mom can always feed both. Every time I have had triplets there has been an issue. Either a stillborn kid...and once a kid that was completely unable to breathe on it's own because it was so small and seemed to have crushed ribs. I know a doe Camanna sold last year went on to have healthy sextuplets.

    Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :clap:

    I personally prefer quads...but my does have all had trips and quads without problems so far. Twins is probably the safest bet if you don't know the kidding history and mothering ability. I hate bottle feeding so I do just about ANYTHING to avoid that!!!! I'm thinking sextuplets means bottle feeding is a must though!!!! :laugh:

    They sure are beautiful kids though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
