Right!? Ug I hate trying em when they are that late and wild. Tame and switching em is really pretty easy. 24 hours without food and they take to the bottle pretty fast. Well I actually use the lamb bar and put a stop valve at the bottom of the tube so there is milk all the way up to the nipple. One little suck and they usually take to it immediately

How old is he (the one you might switch to a bottle)? He's handsome!

He is about 2 1/2 months old. We typically wean at 3 months. Though most years we have so much extra milk, its not uncommon for them to be on milk till 4 months

If he is that old then he won't take a bottle. I wean my bucklings about this time due to them wanting to breed/extend

Ive had babies take bottles well beyond that age 24 hours without their mama or food, alls it takes is opening their mouth and putting em on the nipple. On the flip side Ive had babies a month old that refused and would rather starve to death then take a bottle.

I've only ever switched one kid from nursing on his dam to drinking from a bottle. I did the same thing as you do, and after 24 hours he took it (the bottle) like a champ! He was only 23 days old though...

Hunger is a powerful motivator! As usual, you have beautiful goats!
