Some people do, I can't afford too so I just pull the kids and use universal precautions with their birth and milk/colostrum.

I'm not sure how many live kids we've had this year. Lets see 5 in the house, 5 in a barn pen, 2 newborns, 3 in the doe pen and 2 in the Nigerian doe pen. 17 so far. I still have 3 does due to kid in April and May and 1 or 2 in July or so. Maybe, if they took.

One is a lovely dappled doe. She would be a FF.  Long bodied and really well built.  I am really doubtful on her, but she could easily hide a kid in her.  The other I thought I felt something moving yesterday!  Could be a mistake though.

Do they have to be tested yearly for CAE?  I can't imagine having 5 in the house!  Congrats on the new arrivals, but sorry about the buck.

Sorry for the loss of the one buckling.  That's so sad to see.  But you have 2 healthy happy babies, so congratulations on that.  Your total babies this year is up to what now?

I pull all standard doe kids and those standard bucks that look like sire potential. The other bucklings stay with their mothers until they go to market. I do this for disease control. I can't afford all the CAE testing, so pulling at birth and raising on heat treated colostrum and pasteurized milk takes care of that.

I have 10 bottle kids right now. 5 are in the barn the other 5 in the house. My barn is flooding because of the snow melt off, or all the bottle kids would be in the barn.

I had 2 more doe kids born from my purebred Lamancha by my Nigerian dwarf. Pretty little earless girls! And then yesterday, my remaining Nigerian popped out triplets. I was off getting hay and wasn't there, didn't know she was in labor. One buck never made it out of the sack and suffocated. Another buck and a doe survived.

Well lets hope that's the case.  Because if they are half as cute as the ones you already have, then it's worth the wait. Smiley

2 if they are bred.  I am beginning to have my doubts though as no changes in the udders.  But I did keep the buck until Dec10th , so they could just be way behind the others.
