Just brought home three new Nigerian Dwarves. They are perfect! But... One was spoiled rotten, kept mostly inside, and bottle-fed. The person we got him from said he came out weak and that's why. Anyways, he's never spent a night outside and needs to still be bottle-fed. He's 2 months old. Should we keep giving him the bottle? And, should we bring him inside tonight? Sorry if I sound stupid, I'm new to this goat thing.

Is he eating grain and hay? Drinking plenty of water? If so, I think you're safe to start "weaning" him off the bottle.

He can be with other goats and can be weaned from milk. I've kept my bottle babies on the bottle longer just to keep their weight up for growth. He doesn't have to be off the bottle to be with other goats.
