    My neighbor’s wether is running a fever of 106 and has a slight cough. He’s still trying to eat, but was uninterested in his trough this morning. Still getting more info and will post when I do, but what do you guys suggest? Are there any fever reducers or should she take him to the vet?

Symptoms include: high...

    We have a sick little bantam. According to the guy we got her from she should be about ten months old now. Three nights ago she started wobbling and wouldn't go on the perch with her buddies, so I brought her inside to investigate. I tried a warm bath and checked for a stuck egg but couldn't...

My husband dewormed (I cannot reason with him about this) and gave them Power Drench yesterday when he got them home. The boy has...

    My 2 year old Nigerian Dwarf doe that I've had for 2 and a half weeks seemed off today and didn't want any treats. She was grinding her teeth and moving a bit stiffly. I took her temperature and it was 106.1. I called the vet immediately and left a message. It didn't look like as much water had...

    I have a lamancha doe that delivered triplets 2 1/2 weeks ago. All seemed well until I tried to milk her today and her udder is rock hard on one side. I can't get much out of that side after massaging (maybe a pint). Her udder is also scaly and cracked. I took her temperature tonight (104.2)...

    Our nubian had twins 4 days ago and her milk had not come in. We brought the babies home as one was very near death and the other not far behind. After hours of work they did warm up and both took to a bottle very well. The first 2 days they looked to completely rebound. Both playing, eating...

    Going through and doing my monthly herd check, I noticed that a lot of my temps were elevated and all of them had low fachma scores. Out of 12 does, only one had and average temp and all but one had a fachma score under 3.5 with most being around 2.25 (1-5 with 5 being optimal). 5 does had a...
