2AM Update: Yes we have a set of triplets born around 8PMish out of one of the two new ewes that came here late last fall. This is a Merino/Romney cross ewe and she was bred by Monday. The babes are two ewe lambs named Hannah (black) and Jessa (white) and a ram lamb named Adam. Brick's Marnie and Ray are doing well. I was just outside with the triplets on the hill and they seem to be okay, with bellies full and still in the barn with the heat lamp above them. I checked on the other two ewes still waiting to pop and neither seemed to be in labor but they are both at the farthest point in the pasture (about 3 acres away) from the barn with the heat lamp. Exactly where I found these three on an evening check. I carried all three out of the woods and into the barn and mom has kept them there and is trying to manage! I might be supplementally feeding these guys but not taking them away from mom.

congratulations! are you bottle-feeding them ... or at least two of them? I had sheep 3plets last year and they seemed doing well, but she didn't have enough milk for all of them....

When we have triplets here we feed all of the twice a day and leave them with the mom. Its easier on us and good for the lambs. If you bottle twice a day you know they all have food in their bellies in case one gets pushed out. Good luck and Happy Lambing. Congrats on healthy lambs!!!
