    We took my good camera out to the house today to get some updated pics of the girls.

    Here's lopsided Snowy, actually the other side seemed to be trying to "even" out. She's not due until March, so hopefully she will figure things out;)

    Daisy, she's also due in March, but smaller to develop -

    Daisy heard an oatmeal creme pie wrapper. I'm not sure if they are good for goats, but we just give them little bites.

    Jeff and Henny Penny stretching their legs. We built the "chicken apartment" on the side of the barn. So far, it's working good.

    You will have to wait and see on the lop sided udder.... when she completely fills...
    to see what it will do.... Maybe she is self sucking...? :shrug:

    She is a nut of a goat. While being pregnant has calmed Daisy down greatly, Snowy is becoming a wild child. She is still jumping and standing up. While I was giving Daisy her bite, Snowy jumped up on my back. Bad Goat! :devilish:

    Thanks :leap: . Right now we just have one rooster and two hens. This spring, we plan on getting some bantams and think that this "apartment" will work perfectly for them and build something more permanent for the bigger chickens. We are hoping to add at least 4 more hens to the mix as well as some meat birds for the grill. :drool:

    Question I just thought of - would she be a self sucker (this makes me giggle just a bit) if she was a bottle baby? :ponder:

    theres NOTHING to worry about with the uneven doe! She is perfectly fine. Most goats will milk heavier on one side than the other. I've had dry yearling and even kids with worse early signs. Most times its a good sign of a good producer! So keep your fingers crossed!! :)

    This probably will be true, as I am pretty sure her "dad" had a milking star. I'll have to double check on that. It also probably will be true as we have never tried goat's milk and aren't sure we will like it. My kids have had goats milk at my sister's house, and they HATED it, but we think it was how the goats were fed and stabled at all times.

    I guess if we do get an over abundant amount of milk, we could always give some to our friend that has boer baby bottle kids every year or donate to a rescue/animal control office.

    Can goat's milk be used in ice cream? Would you be able to disguise it enough?

    Goat milk ice cream is great! We had it almost every day in the summer. But your goat milk shouldn't taste bad, of course we have nigerians, but our lamancha milk was good too. People are always amazed when I have them taste it, that it tastes better than "real" milk. My mother thinks it's a real treat. :greengrin:
