Hi Ginnie,
Welcome to the world of blogging and breeding alpacas. Our late cria born at 7.15pm in all honestly was not a problem once he had actually been born.
We are lucky to have space in one of our barns that we use as a birthing bay / sick bay which is all kitted out with heat lamps and a deep bed of fresh straw for circumstances like this.
We do also have jackets for our cria's however we have not used them as of yet, as we have heard tales of the mothers rejecting the cria when the jackets are on.
Its not un-heard of having late births but at the same time its not that common. Im sure you will soon learn that these animals will love to challenge you as a breeder, and the best bit of advice we can give you is expect the unexpected and try and be as prepared as you can, but most of all enjoy this wonderful life style.
