Maybe… looks like a folded ear… can happen in the cold at birth if the kid is not dried well. I know it’s hard for you there. If you are considering him ask for dam/ sire records if they exist or at least pics.
I agree, that looks like folder ears. Sometimes they get cramped in the womb and ears get folded. Typically one would tape them open the first couple days of life so the cartilage doesn't harden while folded. I've had a couple like that. Taped them and they are normal after a couple of days.
I personally don't like when people don't fix them, but I guess some don't know. Aside from the visual appearance, I feel like it's annoying to them to have their ears like that and may affect them in other ways potentially.
Possibly, but I thought it came from the sires side?
You can still correct the ear at birth.
I have a doe with collapsed ears that I never noticed until she was closer to a month old. They don’t seem to affect anything, as of yet. She’s only a 2yo tho.
