Hi everyone. I just recently had a complaint lodged by a neighbor because of a noisy goat (Nigerian Dwarf). I have a feeling he might have been noisier than most for some reason. My other goat was fairly quiet 98% of the time, but Copper would cry for sometimes 2 hours straight in the evening, somewhere between 5-8 pm. He wasn't in pain or any kind of distress, and he would quiet down completely when I finally came outside. I had him from 5 weeks of age, and I made sure not to go outside every time he cried, but if it went on for VERY long, I would go out because I do have neighbors, and if I was my neighbor I would be getting upset. So I completely understand the complaint. My question is, is it possible he cried so much because he was so young when I brought him home? I ended up selling them both yesterday (it broke my heart). The officer didn't expressly tell me I had to get rid of them, but of course I would have to control the noise. Which is pretty much impossible if there's no known reason for the crying. I'd really like to try the "goat thing" again at a later time, but I know there's no way to guarantee a goat won't be noisy. I'm wondering if the age of the goat matters much when bringing it home. Any thoughts on this?
