I have split my does grain allowance in half for the past month, figuring less room b/c of the babies, and giving them half in the morning, half in the afternoon. For the past few days all three have been picking lightly at the grain, and not acting like their usual greedy selves. They are otherwise healthy and acting normal - peeing/pooping frequently, eating their hay, and no signs of imminent labor. Just not eating the grain. It is the same kind they have been getting, they rush over to their bowls when i go in the pen, eat briefly and then leave. They come back and pick at it later, but i don't know if they are eating it all, b/c i have a couple chickens that are able to fly over their fence, and they pop in to visit with the goats every day, and go back to their side at night. They also help themselves to the goats' grain - not usually a problem b/c the goats gobble it down quickly and push the chickens out of the way. Should i worry? The other oddball thing is that i had a large blue bucket for their water - the heated kind. Just hadn't gotten around to getting another one. TSC had buckets on sale last month and I got three small pink buckets, and one large blue one. (i had read a post where someone's baby goat drowned in the bucket, and thought i would get smaller buckets and put them on cinderblocks once i got close to baby time.) The problem is that the goats will not drink out of the small buckets. At first i thought it was new bucket taste or something, but they will drink out of the new large blue bucket. Do you think they care about the color?
