All of the singles were from a 18 month old Boer Buck. The only set of twins I've had were from my saanen buck. He's got another batch of kids on the way for the lady I sold him to. I thought that the number of kids was determined by the ovulation of the doe. I expected several singles from the first freshners. One doe had triplets last year, two had twins. I've learned so much about feeding goats since I've been on the computer and I feel I wasn't feeding them enough protein during the their breeding and early pregnancy, I was feeding 16% goat ration, browse and fescue hay. I have since added alfalfa pellets and BOSS. I sure gave a big answer for such a little question but heck this has really been wierd. What do you think?

Did your great Pyreneese at least have some doelings :) Your buck to doe ratio was similar to mine last year, only add about 22 more bucks! Vicki
