We have 5 bucklings and 5 doelings as of May 1st, 2011.  Kidding season is officially over at our farm.  We're now watching our 6 week old kids increase their consumption of hay, grain and pasture daily.  Soon we will start to wean the oldest kids from nursing by separating them from their dams at night.  I plan to milk the separated dams first thing each morning and put them back together with their kids when they're placed out on pasture.
