Still Born

Still born births can happen a couple different ways. If does fight and one doe slams another in the stomach while pregnant, that can cause a still born kid. Another way is if the kid is in the breech position and the umbilical chord breaks before the kid is born it will inhale the birth fluid.

What to do: You can slap the kid on the ribs or rub vigorously to see if you can stimulate any life. Make sure the airways are clear by wiping off the nose and clearing the mouth. You can also swing the kid to dislodge any fluid from the lungs. If the kids gums are purple, the chances are it has been dead for a while.
