One day old
It was late this afternoon before the kids ventured outside to soak up some sun. Mom spent a good bit of the day outside, leaving the kids all curled up in the hay. We are only mildly concerned that they don't seem to be drinking enough of Mama's milk, but when I tried to milk her today to relieve the pressure, she would not allow it. Mama knows best!
Karen, who sold us Lucille, Helen and Jack, is coming by tomorrow to see how everyone is doing...including us. She is going to give the kids a shot of selenium which should stimulate their desire to feed off Mom.
Other than having a full udder, Mom seems to be doing well too.
