I have 3 adults and four kids right now. The kids are between 8-12 weeks. 3 of the kids are momma raised to good mommas. The one remaining we began to bottlefeed her at 2.5 weeks. Two others came with her, different mommas a mother and daughter, and one of whom we know did not get a good start in life. Well last week our little boy died. His chest was congested, clear snot turned to yellow, but no fever. In fact it was too low, ao I assumed his body was in shock. I put him on a heating pad under a blanket and he did perk up and eat some hay. I started him on pen-g as soon as I noticed the symptoms and kept him in a crate with a radiator heater nearby so he workaday warm but not get too hot, but he passed in the night We came home yesterday to his sister/aunt also passed on with heavily crusted eyes (they were not that way in the morning at all) and heavy saliva from her mouth. There were no wounds or broken bones to indicate a dog issue. She was fine that morning, up and about and fussing like all baby goats do when they see momma. I did give her and our remaining bottle baby their first CL shot on Saturday morning, but both seemed fine not even any lameness. I just took temps on all the remaining babies. All between 101 and 102. Chest sounds clear, eyelids are red and healthy, happy round poop. But they all, even the adults, have slight clear nasal discharge and yellow crusts in the corner of their eyes. The temps here have been fluctuating like crazy, but they have a nice barn to sleep in, and they do. Could my two dead babies just be a congenital thing from not having good mommas in the beginning? I don't like treating with antibiotics unless there is a fever or obvious signs of infection like what my little boy had. There are days where I really feel like I shouldn't have goats. Is this much death common in those just starting out?
