    I have 2 buckling Nigerians that are 6 weeks old. I've had them for 2 weeks now. They came from a dam that had quads and couldn't produce enough milk for all of them. The have been on whole milk since they came home with me. One of the boys is doing great. Great energy, talkative, and all...

    I bought 2 buckling at 4 weeks old. They were out of quads and I guess the mama was having a hard time feeding them all. So when I got them they had never had a bottle before. One is doing great. He took to the bottle like a champ. The other...not so much. He will sort of suckle then starts...
  3. Goat Frenzy
    So we started our goat farm with 2 goats named Marilyn and Miracle. They came to us pregnant and Marilyn gave birth to one girl and Miracle gave birth to two goats (boy and girl). Miracle's little boy passed away, unfortunately, a little after birth. Marilyn and Rosita. Miracle and Lily. Now...

    Hi guys. Im hoping you can give me some advice. So we are fairly new to goats, we have Nigerian dwarf. Last night one of our does gave birth to still born triplets, I don't think they were full term since they were small and it didn't look like they had fur all over the body yet, just mostly...
  5. Goat Frenzy
    Sadly, we had another goat kick the bucket while giving birth last night. She was a bit older, and we did plan on retiring her after this last season. But, after giving birth to these healthy twins (though one is about 2/3 the size of his sister), she went into labor AGAIN about 12 hours later...
  6. Goat Management
    I am new to this forum and new to kidding. I have owned goats for almost two years. I have seven new babies and had hopes of selling all but two. When do I train them on the bottle? My oldest is two weeks old. I was thinking you could transition any time, but finding out that isn’t true or...

  8. Waiting Room
    My third or fourth freshener, Half-Pint, is due around February 28 or early March, but that's just a guess, it could be earlier or later. For the past few days I have noticed that her udder is getting huge and her teats look like they are going to explode. Do you think she will go into labor...
  9. Waiting Room
    So, today I noticed my first freshener, MoonPie, developing an udder. Two days ago she had absolutely nothing, and now she definitely has a bag. I didn't expect her to kid until around April or May, but my breeding dates may be wrong. Is developing an udder a sure sign of kidding in the next...
  10. Waiting Room
    My extra small Nigerian Dwarf Squeaks is finally within 30 (give or take) days of kidding! :clapping: Hopefully all goes well as she is a second time Mom. We bought 5 months after she had her kids and she has been great ever since! She had two bucklings her first kidding with her previous...
  11. Mini Mania
    Hi all, I'm too excited for my future goats. So I'm trying to learn as much as I can in the mean time. :bookgoat: I'm planning to adopt a pair of wethers and bottle feed them this upcoming spring. Again I'm sorry if this info is already somewhere obvious and I failed to find it. When should...

  13. Kidding Koral
    What should I be giving my new pregnant goats? This is their first time being pregnant. We had bought them pregnant and didn't ask a lot of questions. We don't know what they were given when the buck was put in with them or right before we got them. The only thing we have done is put apple cider...

All 3 were nursing and healthy, but the other day we noticed one,not getting enough food and 2 had snot noses. I have been bottle feeding the little one and...

  19. Goat Frenzy
    I have a 3 year old ND doe. Last fall, a week before I was going to put her in with the ND buck, our naughty 6 month old Alpine buck figured out how to get in with our ND doe. I caught him through the kitchen window and before I could get to him he had the deed done. Fortunately for me I...
