My three year old ewe had her first set of twins last week. They seem to be nursing faster than their mama can produce. The mama gets high-quality alfalfa along with about a cup of all-stock and a steady supply of water. Her udder went from huge to about the size of an apple within the three days her lambs have been here. I know with time the demand for milk will only increase and I am wondering if I should supplement a bottle a few times a day. I know it can be hard to get dam-raised kids to nurse but I have done it before. Another thing is sometimes she knocks over her water and it can be some time before it is refilled. Could this contribute?
