My Nigi buckling was born Monday, May 4 making him 4 days old today. He was quite large at birth and seems very healthy. I have felt what I believe to be horn buds since he was a day old. Today, I put him in the disbudding box, with lots of towels, and shaved around his horn buds. They are visible to me. Fortunately he did not protest the shaving or the restraint. My two doelings, now six days old, have much smaller "buds," if they could even be called horn buds. The buckling, Bubba Gruff, is more active than the doelings, remains larger than the doelings and gets along fine with his mom (or vice versa). I am planning on disbudding him this evening before his bed time. I have read all the disbudding posts and see a discrepency in disbudding ages. So my question is, for a Nigerian Dwarf buckling, would four days be too young? Hope to hear some opinions before I heat up the Rhinehart X50!
