Hi there! I'm Sarah and I just got my first pair of goats this summer. My girls are now 9 months old, and I just bred my Nigerian/alpine cross a couple weeks ago with a Nigerian. I'm new to the goat world, and I wanted to know how much is recommended to feed pregnant goats? I currently feed my girls 1.5 cups of sweet feed 2x a day and give them a bunch of hay in the morning. They don't have a big pasture at all and right now everything is covered in snow. Assuming she took, how much (if at all) should I increase her feed and when?

What kind of hay are you feeding? That is probably plenty of feed for them. You do want to be careful how much you feed so the kids don't get too big.

I'm not sure what kind of hay it is. Just what I get at the farm down the street or at Tractor Supply. Also, they are definitely not fat. Haha
