Yes they can sire kids from 1 doe. Had it happen to me. One was intentional and the other got out and into the girls pen. Doe had quads and 2 were from each. Had DNA tests done to prove who the daddy was.
Is he in with the girls all the time? How long has he been in with them?the does wag there tails but hes more interested in grass or food
A good rule of thumb when it comes to breeding is that if the does are cycling and the buck has access to them, you can pretty much consider them bred - bucks peeing on themselves is optional and completely unnecessary to getting the job done. For what it's worth, I rarely see my bucks actively breeding my does, but they all seem to kid within a 5 month time frame - plus a few days to a week - of putting him in with them.I heard they have to pee on themselves before they do anything, i would appreciate if someone told me.
Are the other does healthy? Copper and Selinium deficiencies can be a big problem for does. Last year I had 2 Nubian/Lamancha girls that ran with a buck for 7 months. One came into heat off and on, the other one didn't at all. Turned out it was copper and selenium deficiency, got that under control and they both came into heat. Unfortunately I sold them so I won't know if they really ever did conceive, they were going to be 6 in January and hadn't given birth for 3 years.he has been i nwith the does since he was born and yes i have seen the mucous stuff but only on one doe
Well, calve mineral blocks probably don't have enough copper for goats, and goats won't get all they need from a mineral block, they just can't. Cows have upper and lower teeth, goats do not. You should get loose minerals made for goats. I use the manna pro minerals, or the sweetlix meat maker for goats. Do their tails have a bald spot in the center like a fish tail? That is a sign of copper deficiency, rough & dingy coat, or turning a reddish color are all signs of copper deficiency. Not saying that's what it is.... I have to copper bolus every 3 months, and I did give the Selinium/vit E gel to them to because I'm in a very deficient area... If all of them are lacking these minerals then that is why nothing is happening, that's what happened with my herd last year. Now I have all my girls bred, even though 2 of them really shouldn't be... I'm just hoping for the best... It's worth looking into, my herd is a whole lot healthier this yearthey lick the calves mineral blocks
Yes, he looks old enough to me. He's already trying with the 1 doe. Hoping for kids for you too, as I know how frustrating it is to wait, and wait, and nothing...i dont think its copper but i might need to go get some minerals and thank for your help i hope there are babies on the ground in march or april and does he look like hes old enough to have done his job
