I'm planning on purchasing three nubian does and I seem to remember there are some rules about breeding polled with unpolled goats. Can anyone tell me what they are? I guess that might make a difference in the does I purchase.

So I don't have to worry that if I have polled does I can only breed them to a horned buck? I know I sound silly but just want to be sure before I buy any does. I get too attached to my animals and once I have them they are mine for life.

some do breed polled does to polled bucks but most will suggest against it unless you aren't afraid of dealing with hermaphrodites (both genders in one goat). Its not a given that you will get a hermaphrodite if breeding polled to polled but according to some there is a higher risk for it.

But breeding polled to horned is fine.
