    I had a boar doe have Quads wednesday afternoon. Two bucks and two does and the babies are all doing fine. I went out to the barn yesterday afternoon and offered a bottle and each baby took a couple of sucks and they were done, momma has a huge bag so I guess she is feeding them enough for now. K.C.

    We also have had quads from our nubian doe a few years back. continue to feed the bottle a few times of day though. I never trusted that the smaller ones were getting enough milk and it will tame them all for you nicely. Give Momma an extra scoop of grain and also check to make sure she isn't bagging up too, too much. Might have to milk her once in a while. Now aren't you glad you don't have to worry about diapers with those 4 ??!!
