  1. Introductions
    Hello! I'm new to the production goat arena...I've had a pet pigmy for 8 or nine years but she hasn't really ever needed any intensive management. She's a really sturdy girl and packs with the dogs... Now I have a new herd of kinder and kinder/nubian mix. I am getting milk for the first time...

  4. Kidding Koral
    In about 6 months, my doe, is going to be bred. For my fellow boer goat owners, how many kids does your doe have every kidding? I have heard that most of the time, boers have twins and triplets. I hope she has triplets, so I have 3 little babies to cuddle :lolgoat:
  5. Kidding Koral
    Big 4 year old nubian doe had 3 kids yesterday all with no assistance or complications. She has had twins twice before this and before we bought her. After the first (buckling) was born we had about 20 minutes before the second (doeling) was born then only 8 minutes before number 3 (buckling)...

    Was up at 9:30 MST last night watching mama deliver triplets last night -- 2 bucklings and 1 doeling. I was so excited and a nervous wreck as this was my first time, but it was so amazing all at the same time! Babies are doing great! They're up and walking, and I made sure they got their...
  7. Dairy Diaries
    Hello all! I am new to milking and have a production question. My lamancha, Betsy, has 6 week old triplets that we are separating at night. I milk her in the morning and was able to get 600-800 mL each day with that one milking for the first couple weeks. Now, I am getting 1000+ mL each morning...

    Hi, I had a doe give birth to triplets this afternoon. Doe seems to be in good health and the labor was quick and without any issues. The first born was a very small doeling, the smallest of the three. She was immediately responsive and is still doing well. The second and the third were bigger...

    Thank heavens for ultrasound. After the last debacle with Iris and her false pregnancy we are thankful to actually KNOW that this one is bred! We pick her up from the breeders tonight and will have our due date then. I'm excited. How do I download that "days until" thingy so that I can...
  12. Beginners Goat Raising
    This is my first kidding and my alpine had triplets. One of them is really small and was a slow starter but is now doing fine, except that the mom won't let him nurse. I tried to bottle feed him without success (I do have previous bottle-feeding experience with a purchased kid) but I DID have...
  13. Photogenic
    So, Easter was coming up and my older neighbor loves bringing family, friends, children, etc. over to see the babies. So, as a little Easter surprise (as I knew she would be dropping visitors by to pay a visit) I used Koolaid as a temporary dye to get the kids all ready for their holiday...
