    Can you please help me?
    When I weighed the kids last night they were all 3 1/2 lbs except one of the bucklings who was only 3. I have been worried about this little guy for a while.

    Sugar and her sister are greedy little things so I separated them for a little so the bucklings could get some milk. The little one's brother ate but he wouldn't stand.
    I brought him to the udder but he just laid still. I brought him in and I am going to give him milk with a syringe. Do you think he will make it? What else should I do for him?
     
  9. Are they doing well? Quads are a lot to have without any problems! They're adorable!

    The other babies are doing great. I thought that quads would bring problems though. Just hoping this little guy pulls through.

    My first set of quads I brought the littlest one in overnight because she was not sucking (i think she was a preemie) After talking with people here about bottle-feeding and incorporating her into the herd if she was totally human-raised I decided to bring her back out to her mom but supplemented her with milk from another doe..........she ended up thriving and getting right into the battle with her bigger sibs. Whenever she wouldn't finish her bottle I fed the next smallest baby. Second time I had quads (half-sister to the first doe) she had 2 huge babies and 2 tiny babies but was able to feed all of them with no problems.
