Ooh how exciting! Congrats!
Unfortunately it is hard for a doe to cope with a large litter - humans have selectively bred them so that they produce a lot more babies than in the wild, which they can't always feed or look after properly (it takes a big toll on a doe to raise a litter). After all, even if you're using the most basic of common sense, they have 10 nipples, more than 10 in a litter means they can't feed at will. In the wild they're built to raise 3-4 from a litter (I have read up on this), which is also what show breeders will cull down to (4). It has been scientifically proven that they can feed up to 4 babies at optimal milk production. Any more than 4 babies and the milk increases but not proportionally, so each baby gets less. I usually take my litters down to 4.Demi said:Aww there gorgeous.I wouldn't be able to cull either
