    I am curious if those of you who have kidded out does with quads/triplets notice a trend of does going earlier than if they had singles or twins? I have noticed my girls with triplets (never had quads yet) tend to go earlier than normal versus does who have singles/twins and I am curious what you gals have found?

    (I also am curious as I have a doe who normally has always had trips who looks about ready to pop with what I bet will be quads). I have also had lots of people ask me about it and I only can say from my experience but it makes me curious what other people have found?

    Three sets of quads and none were early. Triplets come at all times. :lol

    Our girls are pretty much on time no matter singles, twins, triples or quads.

    No quads here but lots of triplets. They do not come any earlier than twins that I have noticed in my notes:D
