Of course, several look pregnant, and I could always just take two pregnant does and put them in the buck pen in quarantine with each other for company. Then there would be babies to play with and eventually sell...or possibly keep...
They actually look like good quality pygmy goats. I'd snatch them up if they aren't showing signs of disease or illness...quarantine and disease test them if they haven't been tested already. They won't last long!
they look good..but CAE and CL doesnt always present itself right away...it would be a risk..but if you have the space to keep them seperate,,, the time to spend and tame them, and the money to feed and care for them...????
I sure hope it wasnt a scam...It just look like a "too good to be true" kind of thing!! Ive seen where they put a number on there and the person who answers doenst know a thing about it..kind of mean....
Yeah that is true too Cathy I have seen some pygmies for give away here though, but they usually don't look that good. I think there are a lot of pygmies out there. I always think when I see them posted for free that they are gonna end up in someone's freezer, which isn't entirely a bad thing, but I just wonder if the people who give them away know that.
Yes.., the more I look at the pic th emore I wondered....all tagged...looking that good and the pens..not to mention that buck..very handsome...It would be a steal if it is true!! I dont raise pygmy but I would snag them any way!! lol
See I don't either but If I had the quarantine pen I would do it, and then sell what I didn't want, a pygmie wether would make a good companion for a Nubian buck probably. Right now I wish I had a healthy doe to put in with Daff while Dru is gone, she has no one to snuggle with in these temps. That reminds me I need to ask the breeder how Dru is doing.
I'm willing to call and find out anyway. This is an agricultural community and I wouldn't be surprised that someone let their kids' pet Pygmies get out of hand and wanted out of them. They wouldn't fetch anything at the stockyard and few people here keep pet goats. Possibly they are screening for a good home?
Can't hurt to call!
