    Saw a set of twins yesterday . They were two feet tall or better at the shoulder . I was amazed . Did these things get born early or do they really grow that fast? Got witnesses .

    Fawns are born weighing between 4-8 pounds to begin with. Given that momma is in good health and providing quality nutrition to the fawns that seems about normal to me.

    I saw two fawns yesterday that were about that same size.

    After two weeks of momma's milk they shoot up real quick. The earliest I've found them was May 5th and the cords were still wet.
