  1. 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...
  2. 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...

  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    I have 7 Nigerian Dwarf kids that are about 2 weeks old. When should we give: CDT and dewormer? Also what brand is best for kids and how much to give? They are on mom and got out in a small turn out.
  9. 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...

She's been pawing, she bagged up 2 weeks ago(it's her first time kidding), she is restless, her personality has changed, she talks to her babies, licks at her sides, and even had some mucus one night this weekend, and still NOTHING...

    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...

    About a week or so ago I posted about 2 babies I purchased that had sore mouth. Last Saturday, I noticed that all of our bucks except one had sore mouth and one of the wethers was already healing from it. Then yesterday, I noticed that 5 of our does also have sore mouth so it did spread and we...
