I think this is in the right place. I have so many questions I want to ask someone. But I hate to keep bugging the lady who sold me my goats so much, so I will bug you all with these little things, if ya don't mind. 1. About bedding, what is the best thing to use in their pens? I am using sawdust (or wood shavings you may call them) from my dh's plainer/saws. Free! So far it has been oak. This is ok right? Bella will sneeze when I first put it in there, so I hope it isn't hurting her! 2. How often do I really need to clean the pens? I try to clean them all out when they get damp, because our pens are pretty makeshift for now, under our deck with a tarp over top. The goaties stay pretty dry, but the corners get damp. I have been averaging cleaning the pens completely out about once a week. Is that enough? 3. Do they need a lot of hay when we leave them in the pen, and is it bad for them to leave them in there for several days? (We've basically had to as it has been raining nearly every day) 4. How much water should they be drinking? Hopey (adult) doesn't seem to drink as much as Bella (nearly 5 mo)... But she pees plenty I think that is all I got right now. If anyone has time to answer such trivial questions, I would appreciate it. I won't feel so silly for asking if you do answer my questions!
