I have been so extremely overwhelmed I haven't had a chance to get to the forum in over 2 weeks. My partner was here on Spring break from law school and we were enjoying the start of Spring and getting the fields ready for tilling in order to set up our crops. To top things off we have a bunch of baby ducks, and chickens growing, 2 new guinea fowl, and in the process of trying to sell the last of the baby bucks, we were able to pick up 3 purebread baby Saanen does really cheap!! Now we will be able to expand our flock even further if we can get all 5 does pregnant in the fall. Now the problem started when we assumed we would be able to bottle feed all 3 of them for a few weeks which I don't mind doing at all, but one of the babies will NOT take to the bottle. Ive tried everything, even blindfolding her. Several different nipples and nothing works. She screams when I try to force it, and wont even drink it out of a bowl. I decided to force my one goat Ida who was giving me about a gallon of milk every 2 days to nurse the kid who wont bottle feed, she does it but is very unhappy about it. I have to hold her in place the entire time but so far it works. Is this OK or should I keep pressing on the bottle feeding. The horrible part about the whole thing is that I am not getting any milk for myself and I had been making this amazing fresh chevre and now I need to wait again until I sell the last buck and get all the milk from Dotty, and get this baby off of Ida, and bottle feed the 3. SO OVERWHELMED but in a good way!!
