Boergoat Lambing Season

Our boer goats are lambing currently, the picture below is a new born being cleaned by her mother. A healthy kid should be up and standing within 10 minutes, and drinking on its mother within 30-60 minutes.

So far about two thirds of the kids have been born male, we were speculating whether that had something to do with the severe drought that has affected us, which only broke about three weeks ago.
