    I have kinders and this is true, I just meant that as an average they tend to be a little larger than mini and smaller than full sized. ;)

    But the Nubian is a standard size? So what would they make? A kinder is a nubian/pygmy cross. So it is a standard or mini? Anyway, I'm at every birth for my goats From my large boers to my tiny pygmy. But thank you for your insight. I asked my mentor a few days ago, she said that if I just watch her diet it won't matter and I shouldn't worry about it. But thank you for your help:)

    So.... I look at kinders as mini Nubians...... not a standard for sure, but then again idk on the mini part. With all the mixes of breeds you have going on for the sire and dam, it's just a crapshoot. And, kiddings can go wacky even with genetic knowledge - Good to know you will be there .... I do always, just a great way to manage. Good luck with kiddings!
