Quadruplets are supposed to be a rare occurrence but I have had 4 sets in 3 years from 3 different mothers.

They're very cute. Is the mom able to handle them by herself or do you have to bottle feed to supplement?

Are the moms related---the ones who have all had the quads?

Two of the mothers are related but one is a different breed.
The quads are usually premature and have to be cared for inside, three are doing fine but one is 50/50 it may make it but is having a hard time clearing all the embryonic fluid from it's lungs.

Sorry:apologetic:

How big is your farm? I know you have horses and sheep. Do you have the sheep for milk/cheese?

The sheep are for meat and the goats are for milk, I do eat the extra male goats though.
