    My buck which used to sound manly, know sounds like a baby screaming. He sounds like he's loosing his voice, is this normal? He's 4 months old.

    If he is crying often he will sound screechy. Or thats just the way his adult voice will sound.

    I have a 2 year old that sounds girly , a 5 year old that is quiet but screechy and a yearling that has the deepest baa of them all....and he's the loudest.

    His voice could just be changing, my goats voices change a few times as they grow :)

    thank you...so far he's eating and drinking, haven't taking temp but nothing looks wrong with him. I guess it's those darn hormones. I did see him jump on the wether, trying to do the deed. Must be the change.

    You know I was a bit worried about my adult goat, Hope. Her baaa (we call it her maaaa LOL) sounds pretty weird!! But I don't guess it means anything?

    I guess you could describe her as sounding like a sick donkey too. It is pretty funny sounding! :ROFL:
