Eating tails

800 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  KSALguy
I had an older ewe lamb triplets this morning, when I found them she had already cleaned them but I noticed that she had eating each one of their tails and was trying to eat their ears, how can I get her to stop and why is she doing it?

Some moms in many species can get overly excited cleaning up their young. I had a female Guinea pig “clean” the legs right off her first litter. They all had to be put down.
