We sold our Lleyn lambs as stores - wanted rid of them as soon as I could.  Never flushed them - still prolific.

I never flush mine. Last year I scanned 194% 5 singles.4 trips and the rest twins.

All the trips brought the 3 and I let them get on with it and all lambs are now undetectable from the rest. They have loads of milk and can carry 3 ok.

Tales of multi births are mainly hearsay and as for flighty mine all gather around me when I walk up to them.
If your getting any sheep try to get them from a smallish flock that have been handled.

Lleyns will find a ready market anywhere in the UK.
Traditional Utility Breed Hatching Eggs sent next day delivery. Pure bred Llyen Sheep.
