    My doe kidded a single polled gold buckling today, he is favoring one side should I start milking the other side? Or will he nurse both sides?
  2. Chickens & Poultry
    Last night, I noticed that one of our chicks, Champagne, was getting pecked quite a bit on her back towards her tail. And even worse, that she appeared to have some blood back there as well. Right now, I have her in a separate box with food, water and heat, gently cleaning the wound daily with...

    Hello everyone, it's been a while. One of our pygmy goats gave birth to twins yesterday, sometime in the morning. Today when I went to check on them one of the babies, a brown girl, was limp and cold. I saw her drinking colostrum and she was active yesterday. I brought her home and dipped her in...

    Hello everyone! I need to deworm my children but math isn’t my strong suit... I have a mixed herd of saanens, myotonics, boers, and Nubians. And they’re all in desperate need of a deworming, however the only dewormer I could get at my current location is LevaMed (levamisole hydrochloride)...

    So last night I heard one of my pygmy goats crying like she was in pain. I run outside to check on her, and she is just standing there crying. She is very small so I sat her on my lap. She jumped off my lap, walked a few step, stumbled, fell over, and that was it. She was gone. It all took less...

    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!
  9. Dairy Diaries
    I need help. My gut is saying no but my mother and customer are saying YES! My customer wants to breed my dairy goat to a meet goat and eat the kids. Since the kid would be 1/2 dairy, I don't believe he should eat the kids. I strongly believe in only eating goats that are bred for meat, and...
  10. Beginners Goat Raising
    My buck was disbudded when I got him. I didn't even know this was something that was done to goats before now. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to take care of it, how long the healing process is, or what to expect period. Another concern i have is when I google searched "disbudded goats" they...

    We are new parents of 2 baby Nubian boys. They are 3.5 weeks old now. We have been bottle feeding them 11-12oz of replacer milk 3 times a day, we tried 4 times a day "like the internet said" but it caused a scary case of bloat in one of our babies so we went back to 3 xs. So, we started...

    I had a set of twins born Tuesday (3 days ago). They are a Pygmy mix. The mom rejected the little boy so I am bottle / holding down mom feeding for the first time. I think the baby is doing okay as far as eating but I am really worried about his breathing. It is labored, his chest seems to...
