First Big Freeze

I got up this morning and the computer said it was 25*.. Not sure that i wanted to hear that. I did put bedding out for all of the goats last night and as soon as I did the goats were nesting down for the night. I was worried about the 4 day old kits. The wind was blowing so hard, but their mother had them well covered in a bed of soft rabbit fur. When i went to go check on them they were all warm and wiggling, Thank God . This is a picture of the bunnie nest the day after they were born, today when i looked in on them, there was more hair but basically the same

UPDATED Picture Below

It froze here last night too! Glad the babies are okay. We lost a litter in January when the temps dropped to extreme cold and I didnt realize she was that close to having babies!But it was below freezing and she just couldnt keep them warm enough despite bedding and body heat. If I had known I would have moved her to the basement. But I didnt write down! :(
