Kikos are a very hardy and parasite resistant breed. Developed in New Zealand. The person who bred the Kiko took the biggest New Zealand Feral does he could find and bred them to the larger dairy bucks like Alpines, Nubians, and Saanens. Then they were carefully selected for their hardiness and better milk production and bred to others alike. That's how Kikos originated in a nut shell. Kikos aren't quite as meaty as Boers and Myotonics, especially in the thighs. But there are some Kikos out there that are just as meaty. They have a higher meat to bone ration than Boers.
