    It’s supposed to blow snow here tonight. Our kids are 8 days old. We turned them back on. (Our kids are also between 2-3.5 pounds so they need to save their energy for growing instead of staying warm.)

    I’m a softie so Sparkle and CeCe will probably get their heat lamp turned back on too. They can then lay closer if cold or further if warm.

    Thanks for all the help. Babies are doing well so far. They were very active today and are eating very well.

    Sad day today, Blossom, Cinnamons doe from last year had a doeling. Her heart was beating when she was born, but the baby was extremely small, weak, and underdeveloped. Her eyes weren’t open and she wasnt moving at all. We don’t know if she was just born early or if she is just underdeveloped from Blossom being so young. What a sad day.
    Blossom really struggled while giving birth and was very sad when we took her baby away. :hit
