I've got some boer and boer cross does. Do they ever wean their kids on their own? The reason I'm asking is I've got two that I weaned the kids at about 4 months old. I kept them apart for three weeks and then put them back with the herd. Well, the kids are nearly 8 months old and they are still nursing, so I separated them again. I've got another doeling that is 5 months old and she's still nursing. I've heard people say that at a point, the mothers will refuse to allow the kids to nurse. I'm not seeing that.
