My three does had their kids yesterday. :D

Delilah had two bucks and one doe.

Thanks! Here are the photos. There's one not pictures. Eclipse and the other doeling are still in the house because they are too weak to be in the barn. I have had to tube feed Eclipse the last two feedings. :(

Here are photos of the 6 babies in the barn.

First, a pile of kids.


Honey, Delilah’s doeling.


Delilah’s bucklings


This one, I wouldn’t mind keeping.



Georgia’s Buckling


Georgia’s Doeling


One of Hannah’s doelings.


This was taken the day they were born, this is Eclipse. Hannah's doeling. Not pictured, is Hannah's other doeling.

Ha! That first pic was like looking at a pile of kittens! They all look the same...though I'm sure you are able to tell them apart.

Thanks! Yes I can tell them apart. Took me a few hours to find the difference in each though.

LOL trust me, you DO NOT want them all. They are a pain in the butt, but their cuteness makes up for it. :lol:

Is she still inside or has she been able to go out to the barn to join the others?
Does it look like she will reach 100% and be fine?

Thankyou :D

Eclipse still has issues taking the bottle but she's eating more now then she did before. She's still in the house and will be until she's eating 100%. The other doeling will be moved to the barn this weekend since she's eating great. Honey, a doeling from the barn was moved to the house because she was shivering, had a temp, and a swollen leg so she's in our bathroom at the moment. We took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with what I suspected; joint ill: an infection in the joint. So she has to have two antibiotics shots and one pain shot for 3 days. Poor goat.
