    Pickles had a single buckling this morning at about 9am. Hes a big boy for her size but even though its a boy, I think she did great. Shes being a great mama and taking care of him well. Got the baby weighed with a fish scale and he weighs 8lbs.

    Here is Pickles as of yet unnamed baby boy.

    The pictures are not great but the little guy would not be still for his first photo op. I will get better ones later.

    I am sure glad I bought the Udderly EZ Milker as ahe has small teats with teeny, tiny orfices. Milking with 2 fingers and maybe 1/8 tsp per squirt would be an all day job.

    What a cute little dude!

    Is your girl a FF? I found mine got so much easier to milk. She kidded not quite 8 weeks ago and she went from being a tiny teat terror (as you described...2 finger teats, 1/8 oz per squirt to giving me about 1/2 gallon in 5 minutes.

    Of course my hands no longer function normally, but who needs 'em! :wink:

    Hey free sign boards make great walls, especially 3/4" marine plywood. That entire goat house is made from free stuff. Other than the cost for the screws I have no money invested in it.
