If ewe is milky....leave well alone! Sheep that are fed well can do triplets with ease....I have never taken triplets of a good big ewe with 2 working teats on good grub.....totally unnecessary unless you want a lot of hassle!
If on the otherhand you had several ewes all lambing at the same tine like in a big commercial flock it is v easy to take a triplet and give it to a single mum.

Ha ha nice one Sandy...


Woollyshepard

yes as she was milky I hope that ive done the right thing, they all seem to be doing well, was a bit of a shame tho, finding the single this morning, if I had been there I may well have transfered one over into her fluid to adopt her, but as I hadnt scanned any even if I was there it wouldnt have been clear that she was having a single anyway, I could have been waiting for another and then it doesnt come so...

another question for you woolly shepard but I will post a new topic ok
Suffolk x romneys and Texel X with Romney Tup, Shetlands and Southdown Tup
