Early this morning the hound is barking to no end so I go to have a look, its a doe coming out of the cotton, she runs back into the pasture. Thirty mins later I was going to my feeder to put some corn in my feeder and up jumps a doe (pretty sure same doe)I see one little one, then another, then the third. I put my gamecam back up so hope to have pics. This would be the third set of trips we have had here.

Triples are cool. Our does tend to come out with different fawns all the time. So it is hard to say if they had triplets or it is just a doe nursing more than her own.
We had a doe last year that showed with two nubbing bucks, the next time she had two doe fawns, then a doe and and two nubbies... Seems like ours take care of whatever fawn is around.

The one in the back looks fairly bigger than the other two, I wonder if it was an orphan from another doe and this one took it in before she had her twins. Or could just be it got more nutrition than the others.

And Sapper, usually if these are true trips. One will be smaller.

Agree with sapper here again, the back fawn def looks bigger as if an earlier birth from a different mama and just clung on to the doe. The two smaller ones are probably her twins and the third is just a tag along.

My place had a lot of twins this year, but first time I have seen any there since I just bought it. Seems to be a healthy herd of doe.

I have only seen actual triplets maybe twice. I see does caring for another does fawns sometimes. I have
seen as many as five fawns hanging around one doe. The nanny I guess.

Neat photo of your triplets.

Ive only seen triplets a time or two in the hill country. I always thought twins were more common than not twins through, nearly every year I see almost all twins, now of course not all of them survive to maturity.

It does look like the one fawn is bigger. But here they are all together again, and like I said. Been watching em for about a month and half. But glad that the doe did pick up the other one.
