I have the opportunity to purchase several nigerian dwarf bottle babies from a breeder that seems purposeful and responsible, focused on milk production and health. They like to let their goats go at one week but no later than 1 month. They say the kids will be taking a bottle readily. I've been researching goat care, but have not read much about bottle-feeding at all--hence I am reluctant and will probably let this opportunity pass. I guess, my question is, how wise is it for a first-timer to take on bottle babies? Will I have difficulty finding breeders who keep their kids until they are weaned? I only work part time (two nights a week 7p-7a) but on at least one day it would be difficult to bottle feed multiple times without enlisting my husband (who would probably prefer to father our human kids). I understand that if I want to milk a doe someday, i'd have to breed her, and if there was an emergency I would find a way to bottle feed the babies, but it wouldn't be my first choice. Bottle babies sure are cute though...and a very tame pet-like goat would be appealing.....and I'd be sad if no other opportunies came along later. Anyway--bottle babies for a newbie: good idea, bad idea? Sorry this post got so long,and sorry if this question has been answered a million times before!
