Look up the breed standards for Myotonics. Post some pics for us so we can see condition, etc. Have you been keeping up with worms/parasites.... what are you feeding?

Thank you. Any idea what i can expect for full grown size? Does it look like my assumption they were low on copper was correct? I thought the 2 larger ones coats were fading a bit. ThNks for the replies

I have no idea on weight for fainting goats. I do know that with our Nigerians it can take over 2 years to be fully grown. They look pretty stocky and healthy to me, but I’ve never owned fainters.

There are actually 4 sizes of myotonics. I have small.myotonics, not the minis. My.does are 60 to 80 lbs at 2 years of age. The myotonic takes longer to mature. I dont breed my does till they are 2 yrs of age. My Buck is closer to 175 lbs.

Its hard to tell by pictures. But they are medium to small or Standard size. Smalls cant be over 70 lbs. Standard does are 70 lbs and up to 85 lbs ( if I remember correctly) Bucks are generally at least 30 lbs heavier if not more. They go by wither / shoulder height on Bucks.
