    Our KIKO had had kids last week they were rejected by her and we have been bottle feeding and keeping them in the house since it was so cold. My question is we have a wether can I use him as a surrogate to so them the ropes I know we will need to bottle feed. But would like for them to be with thier own. We have a small corral area that is kid proof :kidblue: I hope.

    Yep, I put my bottle baby out with the herd almost immediately. I think its healthier for them that way.
