  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    I have a Pygmy/Myotonic baby that is being bottle fed as she was rejected. She is 12 days old and is doing well. My question is, what is the appropriate feeding schedule for her? I currently feed 4x's a day (8a, 2p, 8p and 2a) and she takes about 8-12oz a feeding. I've read that they do not...
  2. Goat Management
    So, it just dawned upon me, (when i saw briar drinking from one of my does!) that my boys are too young to be weaned. They are almost 8 weeks old, and lost their mamma on Sunday. I know they probably wont take to a bottle too well but i will try to get them to. I have a doe in milk, who has no...
  3. Beginners Goat Raising
    I am stuck at home for the next few months so I was thinking that this is the perfect time to get a couple of bottle babies. I am looking at getting 2-3 Nigerian Dwarfs soon. Just wondering what advice you all can give me.
  4. Beginners Goat Raising
    Mama had triplets and started off feeding all three. She had an infection about a week ago, for which she needed antibiotics and wasn't nursing anyone for a couple days. The infection has cleared up and she is back to being a wonderful, attentive mom, for two of the babies. But one she...
  5. Beginners Goat Raising
    When I got my bottle baby from the breeder she said she has just switched her from 14-16 ounces 3x a day to 14-16 2x a day along with forage and pellets. She was born on the first of this month. When I got her home I realized I may have to go back to 3x a day and did the first day because she...

    My 4 week old kid had loose stool this afternoon and the stool seems to be back to normal tonight (wouldn't say full on diarrhea). Her and her twin both seem to have large bellies not super firm but large enough to make me wonder if this is normal. They were on the mother for 2 1/2 weeks and...
  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    We are getting two Nigerian dwarf goats in the next couple of days that will need to be bottle fed. We don't have access to goat's milk so we need to use something else. There is SO much controversy over goat milk replacer vs whole cow's milk. I'm so confused and frustrated and don't know which...
  9. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hi everyone :-) Hope you're all staying warm today. Can't wait for this winter to break! My husband and I brought home some bottle babies last night, omg are they cute! But feeding goats bottles is just about as perplexing as feeding human babies, for me anyways, so I'd like to pick your...
  10. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hello All, Thank you for your help. I have 2 sets of triplets 4 days apart (and I'm a beginner and didn't know I bought pregnant goats...nice). My Boer had triplets 4 days ago. She is rejecting the boy. Also, the mother only has one teat, but she seems to be doing fine nursing the 2 girls...
