Hello! I have seven babies that were born the first week of December. We are keeping two and selling the rest. None are on bottles and I planned on having them weaned by mid February when they will be going to their new homes. I am separating the babies at night to milk the moms in the morning. The babies stay with their mom the rest of the day. I have watched lots of videos and read lots of articles so I know that when I wean I will need to separate the babies from their moms full time. From here I have lots is questions. I have a pen I can separate them in but they can see their moms? Is it possible to wean when they can see mom? When do I separate? A week before they leave? A few days? Is there a way to ease their stress because I already know there will be lots of screaming? Should I put my wether in with them so they have an adult? Do I also separate/wean the ones I am keeping? Will I need to separate my bucklings from my doelings at a certain age? I read that can breed as early as 7 weeks. Thank you for your help. It is my first go around with babies, selling and all that. I love my babies so much. I will be sad to see them go.
