I have a Nubian buckling and doeling both exactly 2 months old. Will it be safe to keep them together for 2 more weeks? My new goats will be here then so they will have companions and their separated pens will be completed as well as the barn... Thanks

probably, notice his behavior if he isn't bothering her too much then I would let it go for the 2 weeks. If he is riding her a lot then I would move them.

He is acting as he has since I got them a month ago. They play around butting heads and stuff but I haven't seen him try to mount her yet.

Thanks!!! I am so in love with them :) I'll be getting three more (one pregnant) in two weeks so I am hoping to keep the two I have together until then so they won't be lonely!

There is no set age, sexual maturity is not unusual at 3 months. I wouldn't keep a buck and doe together past 2 months. I know of several unfortunate pregnancies caused by 3 month old bucklings. That's why I said 2 more weeks and you're pushing your luck, particularly with two young'uns that sound like they may be siblings.

They aren't siblings...they just happened to have the same birthday. They are actually from two seperate states lol. Thanks!
