    :GAAH: I have a new doe that will not quit crying. I have provided everything I know to provide for her and she does have company so I have no idea what else to do. When she is shut up at night you dont hear a peep but as soon as I put them out she starts crying. She will stop if I go around to her and I think she may be spoiled but I am trying not to go to her everytime. I feel sorry for her but at the same time I have done all I can. She is in a much better place than where she was but something isn't agreeing with her. :help: :sigh:

    She's scared and stressed out being in a new place. Give her a couple of weeks. My second doe was the same way. Once she realized I wasn't going outside every time I heard her cry she became best friends with our wether. She'll eventually get over it.

    It will just take a little while for her to get adjusted to her new home. That is one reason I like buying goats in pairs, they seem to transition so much easier if they have a buddy.

    How old is she? You do know that buck can bred her at three months.

    It is scary to be taken away from her home and to go to a new one. She is crying for her friends. Patients.

    :cool: We had a much better day today. kids- I ended up with two pygmys that were in a bad place. To be honest it wasn't my first choice but when I seen them and the conditions I broke down and bought them. I am still hunting around for what I want to start a herd with.

    sweetgoats- this is a older doe and yes I am aware of the breeding potential. She is such a sweetheart but had a rough life before now. Even the old "owner" knew nothing much about her. So I am treating her as if nothing has been done to her because to be honest I doubt anything has. She has come along nice and is in alot better shape already.

    These two were not my intention but hey, I feel better by doing what I have done. :laugh:
