I don't have a stanchion, I sort of pin her in a corner and hold her to let him nurse, usually with 2 or 3 legs off the ground so she can't move or kick. She gave him amoxicllin. I keep the other kids away when I try to feed him. I thought she would get rid of the doeling too, but she didn't. She had 2 boys and a girl.
This just occurred to me. When he was born, the fluid in his sac was yellow. The others weren't. Do you know what this means?
