5 Must Haves for Your Kidding Kit


Life and Adventures at Diamond W RanchWe raise Miniature Nubians, so kidding season is always a very busy time for us. In order to help keep things a little less chaotic, we have a kidding barn. We have worked very hard on this barn, and are pretty proud of how it has turned out, especially considering what it looked like when we started.

Kids playing

Each doe, when she is near her time to kid, is moved into her own private stall in the kidding barn. Each stall has clean straw, an elevated water bucket, a heat lamp, and feed/hay areas.

The kidding barn is equipped with a propane forced air heater to use if needed, a feed/hay/straw storage area, a tool bench, a storage cabinet, and various cleaning supplies. Another very important feature kept in the kidding barn during kidding season is the all-important kidding box. There are many useful things in that box, but there are five things I am never caught without!
