I purchased my first two nigerian does from Anna Brown last spring. Most everyone I talk to says not to get a buck yet and I don't really want to. We only have 2 1/2 acres and I am not sure I am ready for a buck right now. But, everyone also says find the best buck because the buck is 50% of the herd, etc. etc. Unfortunately I am having trouble finding quality bucks that stand at stud. I live in SW Washington state and most breeders that I have talked to keep a closed herd or otherwise do not offer stud services. Not sure what to do. I was hoping to breed my two girls this fall. If anyone has any suggestions or knows anyone that offers stud services please let me know. Also a little worried about judging heat cycle and knowing when the best day to breed if we do find a buck that will do "driveway breeding". Any help for a newbie would be greatly appreciated.
