Ok I have two other does that haven’t given birth yet. I’ll move her into their pen.
I would NOT put her in with pregnant does. Even before kidding, hormones cause them to "protect" their babies. You may have to find a completely separate space for her until she is old enough to hold her own. The stress and anxiety from being bullied is hard on a young one and can lead to serious heath problems such as pneumonia.
Sorry to hear about this. I hope she will be accepted eventually. I don’t know how cold it is where you are, but do you think she is warm enough by herself?
Are their any weanlings who can be put in a pen with her? Or you could bottle feed one of the babies from the upcoming does about to kid to give her a buddy, but I wouldn’t want to bottle feed if I didn’t have to. We have had several scenarios like this and have always found a way I would keep her with the mom and the kids if you have no where else. Do not put her in with an adult who does not have babies. Best case scenario is being in with bottle babies or weanlings without any adults.
I may be to sensitive but it’s killing me. She was crying so much this morning that now her voice is horse. She doesn’t follow the herd or stick close and I don’t blame her because they all headbutt her. One of the mamas is head butting everyone humans and goats that aren’t her babies. The only time the baby doesn’t cry is when I’m around.
I would find that hard too!
I don’t know the answer.
They call this goat math but in my mind that just means you have to buy another bottle baby to keep her company. I’m saying that as kinda joking, but think about it.
She needs a friend her age that isn't attached to a momma.
How is it going with the little girl?
How are things.
I have 3lb 7oz baby girl Nigerian/Pygmy mix she is 14days old an only takes about 3/4 of a ounce every 2 hours is that about right an she grinds her teeth till no end!
