    One of my friends asked me to ask how much she should feed her new, 6 month old female goat. Right now she is kinda tubby, but I think she might be bloating from some worms. I gave her wormer for her.
    Thank you!

    All the hay she wants and accessible at all times, maybe a bit of alfalfa pellets since shes still growing and a cookie every now and then as a treat. At 6 months they are not really babies anymore, more like teenagers.

    Oh, okay! She bought her stuff called goat chow. I told her 1/2cup a day and all the hay she wants. Is that right?
