They shouldn’t be hard to find. If she’s actively nursing there is usually no hair right around the nipples.i picked up the doe to check her nipples for mastitis. they were really hard to find. i think they look ok, but im not sure with all the fur on her stomach. while holding her, i noticed there was something on her rear end, possibly dried blood. what could that be from?
Squeaking is nothing wrong some kits make sounds even when they are fine.as i picked one of the kits up, it made a squeaking sound. why would it do that?
What else is in it besides goats milk? Is it fresh whole goat milk? If so, you can add a bit of heavy cream, warm it, and use an eye dropper. Go slow and keep them upright as you feed them. There are formulas on the internet...some add egg yolk to the formula. Ideally, colostrum should be added but it isn’t as easy to get.i have goat milk available that is meant for puppies. is that ok for them?
Of course she feeds them, you started this thread Friday and they would have no chance to survive that long without her feeding them. I personally don't see need to use replacements at all, what I meant by hand feeding was that you could try bringing them to their mothers belly a couple times a day to be sure and give them an extra chance, as in video I posted.ok thanks. do you think that the doe has nursed them at all? after all, they have survived this long until i started hand feeding them...
