Within less than an hour the first kid was born, a doeling. After awhile, Lily started pushing again. When I took a look, I saw four feet. There are only supposed to be two! I slipped my hand in and realized there were two kids trying to come out at the same time. I grabbed hold of the feet that were furthest out and pulled with her next contraction.
Baby number two was a great big boy!
Soon the third was born, another girl.
Gruffy, my Pygmy buck, is the daddy, so these are Pygmy Nubian crosses or Kinders! This was the breed I wanted in the first place. Except I can't legally call them Kinders, because the breed is trademarked. If Lily was registered, I could register them all with the Kinder Goat Breeder Association, but since I can't, I'm not supposed to call them Kinders.
My photos aren't the best, but here are a few now that they're dried off.
Firstborn has moonspots like Lily!
At only an hour or two old, Baby Boy is already a stocky little hunk of buck.
Third born is mostly black. All three were up on their feet in no time, finding milk.
Whew, what a week. We've added eight new kids in the seven days! And I still have Zoey to go. She's not due until mid-May, however, so we can take a breather for awhile.
