What you actually witnessed is a rarity. The doe possibly had two sets of twins. Most people don't realize that when they see a doe with two fawns, they are not actually twins, since they developed from two separate eggs, instead of one egg that split. Most of the times the two fawns will actually have different bucks as the sires. Triple fawns is usually an indication of one set of twins and then a totally different fawn from another egg that was fertilized. The University of Georgia's Deer Research facility has actually documented several cases of does with four fawns, but that is in an enclosed breeding farm. Does that commonly have such an occurrence are usually in the 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 year age group. Also, most yearling does will only have a single fawn, and it's normally after they reach 2 1/2 that they will begin to produce two fawns each year. Many times, if a fawn's mother has been killed by a vehicle or a predator, it's not uncommon for another doe in the herd to take that fawn and raise it as her own, thus creating a situation where a single doe will appear to have multiple fawns.
