Just been to check a doe due tomorrow as she had bagged up earlier. 1 toggy girl (like dad) and 1 saanen girl (like mum). Now have 21 kids, 10 girls and 11 boys. Looks like my boy year is disappearing fast.
Are you wanting all boys??? Although I do think that is what I want next year!!! I need to keep my herd size down. And I do much better at selling the boys than the girls!!!!!!!
congrats on the babies!!!!
Congratulations on all the babies! I too am wondering if you are wanting mostly boys? Most of us are happy when a "boy year" changes and gives us more girls. I had lots of girls in '07 so I suppose I'll get lots of boys in '08.
Last year 06 I had 31 girls and 12 boys, still have 28 of those girls. I'm now up to 101 goats and that is way too many for the property to carry so I need boys ( easier to sell). 3 of the last 4 does that kidded had twin girls although girls are nice to have, if it was 1 of each that would make it easier to know which to keep.
I'm acctually hoping for mostly bucks this year to-so far with my minis people are wanting to buy bucks more than does. And, I really dont need more goats. Although I will have some Saanen/LaMancha grades born.
