    so my 29hour old baby buck just did the whole "bathroom" experience. he did the black tar the he went straight to the yellow poop... but now when he goes he kinda yells and it comes out thick and sticky but not in a kinda baby sold poop.(i have to wipe his butt off with a towel).is that ok as long as it does not get drippy wet??! :shrug:

    As long as it doesn't get a foul smell to it he should be fine... maybe mommas milk is just a little rich. :)
     

  3. The first poo should be dark and then it should turn to the yellowish color. So far you are having a normal kidding.

    Sticky yellow poo is normal, as everyone said. . . my kids like to 'wipe' their behinds on each other so when I pick them up/ give them a hug I get it on my hands and on my shirt!!! :hair:

    Are you mixing replacer or did you transition to whole cows milk? Baby poop til they're a week old is normally the consistancy of toothpaste until they start nibbling hay....even at just a couple days old, if they are not with mom and in their own area you should have hay available for them.

    Colostrum is only beneficial to a kid for the first 24-36 hours, if you can get goats milk in continuous supply that would be best so that you wouldn't need to transition by mixing in small amounts per feeding.

    Start out with 1oz milk to 2 oz replacer for 3-4 feedings then go to 1 1/2 oz milk to 2 oz replacer for the next 3-4 feedings til it's 2oz milk and 1 1/2oz replacer for 3-4 feedings then back off the replacer totally so the bottle is just milk after 3 to 4 days

    you can also use formula -- I like Land o Lakes - or whole cows milk
