Ohhhh my gosssshhh I have never been more angry at my silly babies as I am right now. :mad:
They normally wake up around 6;30am screaming for their bottles which is okay because the sun is just coming up and it's not THAT unreasonable of a time.
But 3:30?!? I am more than angry. And stupid me got out of bed real quick and made their bottles before mum shuffled out and said, "they're up a bit early?"
When I realised what happened I was so so angry that they were awake in the first place, screaming, but I had also made their bottles and wasn't going to waste all of that, so I was essentially rewarding them for being big idiots!!!
For the record I stood out there with my back to them for five minutes without moving no matter how much they complained.

Sorry to vent like that! I just wish I knew it was going to be this bad :hammer:

I hope it fixes quick because I doubt the neighbours will be very patient with screaming at that hour :(
I highly doubt it. They're in an enclosed backyard and nothing can get near them that they're already around all the time. I'm fairly sure they just decided it was a great time to wake up and be hungry.

They're 8 weeks old now, they chow down their hay (as much as they want) and they get a tree branch every day, they've basically eaten everything in their pen, and they get pellets that they nibble on but aren't particularly interested in.

Yep, they're just big babies who think they can scream and get their bottles whenever they like. They had a bit of hay and still have grain in their bowl. *shakes fist*

Oh gosh I'm at my wits end.

My low point is now sitting on the ground crying at 4am for a good half an hour, and then deciding to lead two very cranky, naughty, hungry baby goats INSIDE to the kitchen so they wouldn't scream everyone awake while I made their bottles (I hope mum doesn't find out). They both decided that right then was a good time to dump out the entire contents of their bowels on the floor :hammer:
So they got their bottles and instantly they are quiet and willing to sleep.

Why can't they be happy with hay and sleep for just a couple more hours? :(((

Check with your town ordinance or state livestock laws. In my state/town the noise from livestock cannot be grounds for the police to be called. They can be as loud as they want. Good thing, since I have very close neighbors on all 4 sides and loud goats, 3 roosters and 2 Great Pyrenees LGDs!

You're going to just have to let them scream until they realize that they cannot control you! I'm sorry, been there done that wil kids, both 2 and 4 legged!

My town council is hopeless and the website has no information regarding anything but dogs and cats. And I super highly doubt that there'd be any allowances for things like goats. :(
To be honest, I wouldn't even blame anyone for calling the police or even climbing over the fence and strangling them because they are sooooo infuriating LOL
I wish I could just ignore them but at that time it's impossible.
