My friend Sarah at Mac's Rainbow Nigerians had two does that were due to kid the same day as Millie - June 9th. One of them kidded yesterday, and the other who was bred to Sunny, kidded this morning with twin doe kids. Unfortunately only one survived, quite probably because Libby was a first time mom who didn't know what to do with the kids.
The birth of these two does means that Sunny has a 50/50 doe/buck ratio for the second year in a row. While I would prefer a higher doe ratio, I'm happy that it isn't higher on the buck side. And the fact that he throws a lot of color is a bonus! This doe kid reminds me of last years buck kid out of Sunny x Millie, who like Libby is black and white. The doe kid that didn't survive had flashy markings very similar to Sunny's half sister Mystery.
I gave Millie a stern talking to this morning about not following Dahlia's and Libby's example and told her she should wait until at least this weekend to kid. Of course having done that she will either kid early herself, or hold out until well past her due date. Hmmm..... I think I might just head back out to the barn and get the kidding stall ready just in case.
