    First kids due February 21...of course when the weather's cold and crappy! This is worse than waiting for Christmas. At least for Christmas I can peek!

    I agree Ruth. I have my first ones due about the 3rd of Feb. That is the earliest due. They are already really sunk in. I am getting so excited.

    Okay, so my first kids are due 2/21. This morning, Mermaid was acting weird picking at her food, then eating a bunch of it, then picking...

    She seems to be uddering up a bit already and her vulva is a bit darker pink than usual.

    Since she's not due for another 4 1/2 weeks, should I be concerned? This will be her 4th freshening. She's huge! There's no chance I missed an earlier breeding...she wasn't anywhere near a buck before that. If it's triplets, might they come earlier than the usual twins? If she kids this early, will the kids be a serious risk?
