Hello again, well the little Male is still in the kitchen, doing well, I put him in the shed the last two mornings so he will get used to the fact that he is a goat and not a dog - lol, he curls up with the lab and the shitzu on a blanket on the kitchen floor sometimes. He didn't mix at first, but was a little cautious - but today he mixed a little . How long do you think it will take to get him used to being in the shed all the time. Today he actually played in the shed with the others and yesterday he realized he could maa, so, when he hears me come down in the morning, what a greeting ! Since he is going to be whole male don't want him to get used to the idea like gretel, that he can waltz in and help himself ! Should I keep doing it gradually, he was born on the 12th, and it was his sister who couldn't pass feces. He does like his basket though! I can safely say that he is up to 45 oz of milk a day between all the bottles. I just stopped the 2am feeding 3 nights ago. When I put him in the shed, I usually make sure all the mommies are out, and then I put a bucket of hay, and some grains in there for all 10 babies to nibble on.
