Ive heard buckling need to be separated at around two months. If kept in the pen longer will mom accommodate him if in heat? Hes definitely trying and have a feeling he bred a fowling I had in there last week. She was red swollen back there and had a messy tail.

Hes not tall enough to reach them but if they get lower ...that's another story.

Are you needing a buckling? If not.. its really easy and simple to do a quick wether job then all your worries will be over. If you want a buck.. you will need to separate if there are things going on and he will need to be weaned. It wasnt a problem for us at that age but we do make them wethers before 10 weeks old.

The babies we keep on their dams are kept with them until at least the 3 month mark and we have never had an accident. BUT by the time the last of our babies are 3 months old (about now) our does have not even thought of coming into heat yet. We kid out soon enough that by Sept. 1st, all the babies have been pulled.

What kind of goats. If he is a boer buck and is bringing "it" out, he can breed. If he is just mimicking the move and not bringing it out. He is OK until 2.5 minimum to 3 months old Maximum. ;)
I agree, check it out and see what is going on. I have 2 month old boys who are humping away but their penis is not coming out. The wetness might also be pee. I noticed on those same little boys that there is wetness so Im thinking it might have been pee. I also agree am going to do the same here soon, if your worried band them.
