    Sorry!

    I love her too! She's my last pygmy doe and she's not a spring chicken anymore. I can't count my kids before they're hatched but if I get a doeling(s) out of her it/they will probably be with me forever! Heck, even if I get bucklings they might get to stay here too, lol.

    How many? I want twins - I always want twins. :fl

    isn't that the truth FEM. the rest of the world can keep their trips. quads and quints. give me a nice healthy set of twins.
