    Thanks all the sad part is that the markings were almost exactly the same between the twins except the other ones markings were brown like his momma and their sire is a white and black.
    How big are normal Boer twins reason I ask is Spot(my kids named him) is 10.5 pounds and his sibling was just under 10 pounds. Our others set we had last week that had the same sire but a KIKO mom were both just under 7lb each.

    Aww sorry. Surely he'll make up for his brother.
    10lbs is great for twins on Boers! Ours usually run a little less when they trip out.

    They sound like they were a good size not super big but not small. One of my kids has the same spot on his back but he is our only red kid born. the other 2 are black heads. both moms are red heads and dad was all black.

    Thank you all.
    BTW after reading Toth Boers Post the kids have changed his name to "Romeo" .
    It was nice to see their imaginations kicking in
