We have larger goats so this may not totally apply but at birth weights usually range from 6-10 lbs. Mostly depending upon number of kids born. The more their are the more the birth weight is spread across. But not unusual to have 1 or 2 much larger at birth leaving a runt of say 3 lbs to play catch up. Single kids also tend to be larger. Here 10-14 lbs is common. Yes, I know, poor goates
As for weights at 3 months old, sex also can factor in with boys being slightly bigger and heavier then their sisters. But Id say 30-50 lbs is pretty standard here. If I remember right Legion was 125 lbs by the time he was 10 months old. But he is well above normal on growth.
Thanks. Our first birth is due Feb. 4th and I am designing a club house play area that will be a series of cubes randomly stacked and I want the bottom open so little ones can get under various spaces that are too small for adults. I'll work off the size of a 30-40 lb dog.
