Now I have another issue. Two other does decided to kid last night and they both had triplets. The one mother is an excellent mother and is taking care of the two surviving ones (one was born dead). The other had kids last year, but both hers were born with the sac on when I was not around and both died so she has no mothering experience. Now last night all three of hers were fine but she kept laying down on top of her kid. I realize three is a lot to keep track of, especially for one who has never had kids before. The one did not make it through the night. If she was being mean to the kids I'd take them away. She's very attentive, just about washes the living daylights out of them, but I am not sure they're getting anything to drink. She's acting very flinchy in that general area, I kept seeing her move away from them when they'd try to head in for a drink. I tried holding her and she just sat on her butt like a dog. The babies still tried to drink, but it was a very odd position and I just don't know that they got anything from her. I also don't know that they didn't. I know I just can't fool around here, they've got to get something in their tummies. In a way I think it was sometimes easier when my parents raised dairy goats. The kids were immediately separated and given the colostrum that was milked out before being put on replacer. But here I'd like to have the mother and kids stay together so I don't want to mess things up by interfering when I might not be needed.
