    I brought home 4 more girls home today from the farm, after picking my daughter up at 2pm, then dropped them off, then went to get one of my sons at 3pm in his school, drove to the larger town to get my other son, came back to check the triplets, and heard a little maa, and there was dusky after kidding - before 4pm she left two boys in two different places. She had the preemie last year. These two have their eyes open. I don't know if she has enough for both of them, will Honey's colustrom be ok? I am milking her by hand as I dont think she will take the kids?

    My thought is some colustom is better then no colustrum!

    I have 2 bottle babies that for the first 4 weeks drank nothing but another goats milk from a bottle. At least they will be receiving the nutrients and antibodies that they need!

    That colostrum will be fine for the babies.
