    So far we are at 5 doe kids and 1 buck kid :cool:

    Last year my angoras were roughly 50:50 but EVERY SINGLE BOER DOE HAD BUCKS!

    So far I've had:

    Miffy - Saanen x Boer doe
    Boer triplets - 1 buck (Emmett), 2 does (Thumbelina and Effie)

    And today Sweet Pea (angora) gave me twin does :leap:

    These twin does are pretty special. To start with, Sweet Pea is my best angora doe and I'm wanting to use her as a foundation doe and build a herd out of her daughters. last year she gave me twin girls and I can believe I'm lucky enough to have another set of girls!

    The other reason these kids are so special is they are sired by Heath, my infertile buck. He's a pretty good buck (genotype and phenotype) and I paid a fair bit for him, but he got an infection in the testicles which left him sterile, he's only managed to breed one doe out of about 30 in the last 2 yrs. Plus, he's got nasty, so I'm eating him, but I've got 2 doe kids from him :)
