And today the other doe also has clumpy poop but it also contains some grains which...

    Hi there! My name is Cindy and I just bought two 9 week old Nigerian Dwarf goats. I am brand spankin' new to having goats, but my husband grew up on a "hobby" farm. We got these guys from a reputable breeder 45min. from us. They are both males and were banded the day we picked them up (Aug...

    I was away this weekend , and my dad was taking care of my goats, including my pregnant one. I suspect he was feeding them corn instead of the feed I usually give them. I am sure that is the cause of her stringy rectal discharge, but would their be any other causes? She is eating and drinking...

    I had been fighting off Coccidia in one of my young bucks. Thankfully it cleared but now he has a bit of dried poop stuck on the back of his legs and tail. I was debating bringing him inside and giving him a warm bath and using a soft soap to try to get it off. Or am I better off trimming it...

    My Willow is on her 3rd freshening (but I'm posting in here because I feel like a huge beginner still). She just had a little buckling on Tuesday night, and I haven't seen any poop from this little guy. No scours, no logs....mayyyybe some small goat pellets, but I have read that doesn't happen...

    Hello All! I have two little bucklings I acquired from a dairy farmer Wednesday of last week. One is a Saanen (Waylon) and the other is an Alpine (Lucius). Waylon came to me with bloody, highlighter-yellow scours, but that has since cleared up since he has been on the milk replacer. I feed...

    What creates log poop in bottle babies? They get whole milk 3 times a day (8 oz). They are Nigerian Dwarf goats. They have Manna Minerals free choice and baking soda free choice. Coastal hay all the time. They are in a small pasture and can browse. Only one has it.

    I've read the other 27 threads on this and my Doe's situation is different. There have been no changes in her diet, she kidded twins 6 months ago. She was wormed a few moths before and also about 3 months ago. We worm entire heard of 9 about every 4 months. I separated her from the twins about...

    This is a bit of a strange question. I have a couple ND babies that I'd like to use as hiking companions, and maybe to carry a bag of trail mix or something. To lead train them and build up stamina I plan to walk them around the park across the street from my house but there's one problem: the...

    HI! I have this precious new kid who has a bit of a poop problem. It's a normal color but the "berries" are clumped together. When we first got him there was also an orange mucous involved but that has subsided. We got him at 15 days old, now he's 1 month and 1 day. He's a Nigerian Dwarf wether...

    Our doe just kidded Sunday night and she is not keeping his little butt clean. She is feeding him, but every morning it is covered in goopy mess and stick to his bottom so no more can come out. In the past, the mothers have kept all that cleaned off. She is feeding him well and taking care of...

    I have a goat that is moving slow and just standing and staring like a zombie. She is friendly and always comes to me but late yesterday she stopped. Today she is doing the same but has stayed in Barn most of the day. Her poop was clumped yesterday and I just checked her she looks to be starting...

    Hey all! We were given an adorable (aren't they all?!) 10 week old doeling on Sunday. Today we walked her on a leash and allowed her to nibble her way down to the creek with us. She's been nibbling on her hay (good quality) all afternoon, too. But, this evening she had one sticky clumpy poo...

    I was wondering if anyone uses their goat poop and bedding as fertilizer for their gardens? If so do you put it directly in the garden and till it under, or do you have to let it compost first? Any tips on the subject would be greatly appreciated. I am going to plant in the next few weeks...

    I'm just curious - I have a Nigerian Dwarf bottle baby on cows milk. Always been a bottle baby & in the house as he was a runt and neglected. About 4 weeks old now. He was pooping what I think was normal little clumpy pellets but when I upped his feeds and tried to cut back to 3x a day from...
