First there were two...
Troy came this morning to help clean out the chicken pen and one stall in the horse/goat barn. After checking the three remaining does for signs of labor, I locked them out in the adjacent pasture 12 feet away from where we were working. We were done by noon, and as I was walking Troy out to his truck, I glanced up at the pasture to see how everyone was doing. There were two little kids lying on the dirt! No one had uttered a sound. I ran into the barn for a towel and carried one little doe into the kidding pen. Then I went back for the second little doe and Amy, the mom. I treated navels with iodine immediately since they had been lying in the dirt. Emergency over.
