    So last 2 does didn't settle... with more low temps that's ok. Anyways have 5 does due between Feb 2 to Feb 8. Pretty sure we'll get some kits. We are expecting extreme low temps today through Jan 31... like we'll below zero, and -40s windchills. Hopefully no early kits....

    5BEB8E26-CECE-4719-9B76-93C667206D37.jpeg Spots our other polish doe had 3 kits last night, I "shelved"them due to more low temps . And woke up at 5 worried about them. I just took them back out and looks like miss special (mini rex) was making a nest. ☺ none of the velveteen lops settled. :barnie hoping my new buck is not shooting blanks... he's been "off" the last couple of weeks. So dewormed for cocci and giving extra feed. He's eating great but not breeding, drinks a lot and just off. It's odd. He acts better but not 100% with the Wormer and isn't looking bloated. I did put him on a different feed too as he was eating but lost a lot of condition.... not quite sure what to think.

    Special had 2 BIG kits... of course one is a non showable color, chocolate tort... :confused: but both seem healthy. brought both litters inside last night due to temps, spots was super happy to get her babies back. Special just wanted fed but not to worried, it's her 3rd litter and she's done well in the past. Shouldnt have to bring them in tonight but will watch the temps

    Special and Spots kits are doing well. About 3 weeks until the next due dates. This week I will be palapating.., not that I am any good at it. I do feel that I am better with the smaller does though :bunny

    Same here. Three litters due March 2-3 and the weather is supposed to be cold and crappy all week. No sleep will be had this week. It looks like I'm on raccoon patrol now, so sleep wouldn't be an option even if the weather was good.
