    Here's a video hubby made of our new twin goat kids, Angel and Mitsy. (Thank you, Jess! - we love 'em!) It shows how well they adjusted to bottle-feeding and their new home. As you may recall, the girls were taken off mom at 7.5 weeks when they came to live w/us. The video was taken yesterday, on their fifth day here. Towards the end, Angel is caught trying to nurse off a couple hen turkeys and the hens don't seem to mind one bit. :slapfloor: Silly girls! :ROFL:

    Turkeys are so crazy! Probably thought the goat was preening her or some thing. LOL :laugh:

    I love the bit with the turkeys! Too funny that the hen didn't seem to mind at all... I know my rooster would have definitely taught that young whippersnapper goat kid a thing or two :wink:

    The first hen Angel is shown trying to nurse off of is a Blue Slate. Her name is Saphire and she's about a year old now. I had a tom, too, but rehomed him with another tom after they became overly protective of my does and started attacking any and everything they perceived as a threat to them. :shocked: I just got an update from their new owner and both boys are doing great there, have adjusted well and get along with her other birds and horses -having no goats to protect seems to have shaken their bad habits and turned them around. <lol> I have two other hens, a White BB and a Royal Palm, all for egg production but they also do a fabulous job bugging and cleaning up spilled goat feed, which also helps keep pest populations down. I :love: my turks.
