    I am getting a burning iron for my nigerians..now I am thinking about the box. I can build one, and I have seen how-to's online before, I just want to make sure of the dimentions for my babies. If anyone has ideas or has ever made a kid box, I would love to hear about it!! Thanks a bunch! :greengrin:

    Victoria, I am sorry, I have no idea about the box or anything that has to do with the dehorning. I do not do it.
    I will have to look where I say the sizes on line. I know I saw a how to and the desired size for different goats. I would think one was as good as the other but then again what do I know. :scratch: :shrug:

    I got the head piece for my box off of hoegger supply. But like someones elses mine is built for standard sized kids. But if i put a block of wood or towel in the bottem i can fit a mini. Another thing i did with mine, is i didnt hinge the lid onto it. this way i can put bigger kids in, often their heads are too big for the headpiece and i have to rest their heads on it the lid wont line up and is slightly further back.
    the building instructions come with the head piece.
