At what age do wethers grow horns?? I am worried that my baby might be getting them!!! He is about 2 or 2 1/2 months old.
Mulley (or muley) headed is an archaic term for a polled animal. I've heard it used by old farmers around here about goats and cows.Well the guy I got him from said he won't grow horns. He has really small nubs were they would be. I think he said he was like a mulley head or something like that.
So does that sound right that he won't grow horns??
it depends on whether or not the polled parent is homozygous for the polled gene or heterozygous. All of the charts I have read say it is 50% chance on a Pp to pp breeding. Here is a sample of a Punnett square showing how that works (just replace their letters with "P" and "p" and you can see how it works):Yes, any goat, given it is in their genetics, can be naturally polled.
And I believe it's a 25% chance of the offspring being polled, might be more, I'm not completely sure on it.
You should play the lottery, haha!!!Had a poled yearling Toggenburg doe kid with triples and all of them were also poled
