    So this doe is a first freshener and I'm actually not sure if shes even pregnant or not. Our late buck Cassius had gotten out of his pen a couple months back and had run amok among the does for probably a day ir half a day. The doe in question is about two years old and shes looking for large...

    Hey everyone, sorry is this is in the wrong place, but I just got my first buck and I’m pretty sure he’s already bred one of my does but I’m not sure. What does a successful breeding look like? On both the female and male parts? They were acting very interested in each other through the fence...

    I’ll be getting myself a 10 month old Nigerian Dwarf doe for March and am curious about when to start breeding. I’ve been told 8-9 months, 12 months, over a year, etc. And would like some opinions.

    Hello everyone. Hope all is well I was surprised this morning to see one of my first-timer doe's gave birth! When I came out to check on them, she must have just birthed them maybe a half hour before I came out. She kidded a week earlier than expected. She was due next Thursday. Anyways, as I...

    I have a few goats that I have dewormed with a combination of Safeguard (fenbendazole) and Cydectin (moxidectin) yesterday. Neither of those dewormers treat coccidia so I was wondering if I should go ahead and treat for it just in case. I have a bottle of the Corid 9.6% Oral Solution that I...

    Hi all - I have a weaning question. I currently have three does, and do pasture rotation on a weekly basis. I milk one of them (Patience) daily, and have been since early May 2019. I've read that folks typically wean the kids around 3 months, and sell them or rehome them, etc. However, I kept...

    Hey guys! I'm new here and fairly new to Goat keeping. I've got a trio of Nigerian Dwarf Goats (two Ewes and a Buck). Being the newb that I am, I did not make note of Trouble's last heat date and a month ago I started noticing changes in behaviour and shape so I've been keeping a close eye on...

    I have a 1 year old ND that is only about 40-50 pounds. She is a little skinny and boney. I am going to try to get a fecal test done this month but I was just wondering what feed is good for putting weight on goats? Is whole oats better than pellets? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hey y’all, I’m very curious how much my Boer yearling doe should weigh by this year’s fair to be on par with other does her age. She’s filled out fairly well but she’s sort of short so I feel like she may be smaller than other does. I don’t have an exact weight on her right now, haven’t weighed...

    Hello Goat Spot! First timer here, 5 goat herd in GA--1 female 4 males. This morning our female goat left approximately ~2 cups' worth of discharge all around the pen. It has the consistency of egg whites, and no smell. I can't find anything online about this sort of sheer AMOUNT of discharge...

    How much longer do you all think she has, I think her babies have finally dropped!

    Forgive my horrible finger getting in the way haha. Remedy is getting closer, and closer, and i am getting more and more antsy! She has started separating herself from the herd, and is grooming herself like mad. She is even letting me love on her, which she never does.

    Does above her vulva look puffy to you guys? Is that normal? She is due in the next couple of weeks, and I wasn't sure if the puffiness was normal?

    Ok, goat gurus, I'm hoping you all can help me out here. My Nubian doe, Josie, is approx. 103 days bred, and has recently started developing some issues with her pasterns. They look fine when she's standing still, but when she walks, they bend until they're nearly parallel to the ground. I...

    Good Morning, I purchased a new Nubian in Early December, who was already pregnant, due Valentine's Day! Also arriving with her was a young buck, so my two girls, Lola, a 4-year old Boer with horns, and Ivy, a 2.5 year old Nubian, were busy with him, although Ivy seemed to be making friends with...

    Hello! I have a heavily pregnant doe that will not lay down. I have cameras on her and she has been sleeping standing up for two nights. I have my suspicions that it’s because she’s just so big and it’s uncomfortable to lay down. My concern though is that she has no udder and her ligaments are...

    My five year old Mini Nubian May has suddenly stopped eating. This is the goat that has frequent problems with ketosis (I think - the vet diagnosed it the first time and after that whenever she showed the same symptoms I treated it like ketosis and she got better). I’ve upped her alfalfa and...

    Hi everyone, I am looking for some treatment advice with a 1 1/2 year old Nubian doe. I acquired her from some friends and she had never been around a buck (just 2 other does). She has been coming in heat like clock work since August of 2019. She has been with 2 different very fertile bucks a...

    Hello folks. My 50% Nigerian cross is currently 2 weeks before kidding, assuming she's bothered reading the goat handbook. She has kidded before, though not with me. Tested for CL, negative. She has developed a lump above the teat in her udder. Any ideas what it could be? Mastitis, with...
