They’ll grow out of it somewhat.
Do you go back out when she hollers like that? If you do then its a habit she has now learnt?Honestly, I’m having the same issue but one of my does is fully grown. She yells... and yells, and yells, and yells until we come back. Which we don’t, but I end up getting worried she’s yelling in pain. Just my own worried brain. I’m assuming this is just something that will last for her lifetime? Unfortunate, but I’m willing to deal.
Not usually, no. We just got her about a month ago so she might’ve learnt it from the previous owner.Do you go back out when she hollers like that? If you do then its a habit she has now learnt?
I don't have this issue.Is there any way to "condition" new babies to not scream when they see you? We just brought a couple of 3 month old nubians home and they are quiet during the day and when we are in the pen, but when we leave them, they yell only until we are out of sight/earshot. It was somewhat expected being babies and new and...nubian... but is there anything we can do to not make them worse? Routines? Tips? Tricks? (Besides earplugs.) I've had boers in the past and they only bleated when they say us with food, never just because they saw us or because we walked away. Right now, they are in a little run attached to the barn, but eventually we want them to pasture, but we dont want them screaming and running to us every time they see us! Are we/they doomed, or is this something they grow out of to some extent, and is there anything we can do to help set us all up for success?
