We're supposed to start mid April, but have 3 new mums already. Only another 197 or so to go!
My first year with sheep...and she lambed three weeks ago. Two happy lambs, male and female. My goats are due in mid-April...I think maybe I'll aim my ewe for that next year! Lots warmer then! Didn't get the choice this year.Shahbazin said:My lambing usually starts the first week of March. So about 3 more weeks to go....
I got the ewes form an old man that could not take care of them anymore, there was not a ram there. So I know they were not breed already. The Ram is a Feb. ''03'' lamb maybe he is too young?Ross said:You know different breeds will breed more or less reliably year round. December is a perfectly good month(if getting a tad late for some) to breed sheep. I'm wondering why a ram would only breed one out of four. I suppose they might not be coming in heat, the ram might have had a problem, or they were already bred. Any signs you might be getting lambs earlier than expected?
