    I am not sure if this is the right forum to put this but here is goes..

    How much ( oz) colostrum do you feed your newborn nigerians?
    I wanted to pull the kids from mom right when they are born so mom doesn't bond.

    How often do you feed them?
    How much do you increase there milk as they get older?
    Sorry for all the questions but I love to hear other peoples opinions. Thanks!! :greengrin:

    2 ounces every 2 hours.

    It goes up and then you can decrease the number of times you feed as they get older and you increase the amounts. I dont have a set schedule, I just do what seems natural and fits for the individual goat.
