    Our last girl kidded last night ( the other girls were nice all kidded in the afternoon)
    Total of kids- 4 bucks, 6 does.

    We found out that when one of the girls would start to kid..
    The whole barn would be quiet. Chickens would stop clucking, the roosters
    wouldn't crow....

    Once the kids are born the chickens would cluck, the roosers would crow
    & make noise louder then ever

    Last night after the last kid was born 11:30 pm
    You would have thought the chickens were having a party
