I was just wondering what the average size/growth rate for
Saanen kids was. My 5 month old doeling is approximately 50lbs. She's not skinny at all, and is about half the size of my yearling FF. She was bottle raised and weaned at 12 weeks old. I had her on coccidia prevention early on, and she's been dewormed with Valbazen once, although she's never shown any signs of a parasite problem. She's on a 15 percent protein goat mix and grazes all day. Is this a good size for her age? Assuming she gains 10lbs. a month for the next three months, she'd be ready to breed at 8 months, which is when I plan on breeding her anyway.
