I have a doe that didn't take to ai as a yrling and our backup buck turned out to be shooting blanks so she hasn't had fawns yet. I am presuming she cycled last season. If she cycled can i expect twin fawns out of here or will she still have a single as a first timer? I am guessing twins BUT just want to see if anyone had first hand experience on this?

More than likely twins, but who knows. I have seen 2 yr olds give 3 and 8 yr olds go from 3 live covers to a single AI'd. Ya never know

The only does that ever gave me a single were when a fawn is bred at 7-10 months old, then has a late fawn that summer. Every single first time mother that wasn't bred as a fawn, has had twins for me.. I think it's a sure bet she will give you twins. But it's beyond our control so I guess we take what The Lord gives, lol.
