First Baby Born On Our Homestead by Renee Lottier posted Feb 12, 2018 at 10:22 PM I just had my first mama give birth. I had to remove her from the pen with my other DN mama because the other mama kept headbutting the newborn baby every time she stumbled too close. Now I have the new mama and her newborn in the barn together, but separated from the others. She sits in the pen and cries something awful! I feel like she thinks I'm punishing her. She's never been away from the others like this before. I'm worried that they won't be warm enough if I put them back out in the outside pens, even if I separate them. Am I being ridiculous? I don't want to stress her either, but I worry about the newborn.
