    Kidding has started and then some at our farm. We have had 12 does kid with 28 kids between them. Does that have never had triplets in 5-6 years are having triplets! It is crazy. We go out to milk and come in with more kids to feed. All the crates and pens for babies are full and overflowing. Chores are taking forever. Got up at 6am yesterday and didn't get to sit down until noon. And to top it all off, we still have 7 or so does due in the next week or less, and that is just round one.

    Poor mom is on her own most of this weekend since I work all 4 weekend shifts at the vet clinic. I just can't wait for it to all be over and have all does and babies on a somewhat normal schedule.
