Please don't yell at me if this is a bad idea i don't want to breed unwanted goats ether. But were i live i cant find a lot of active breeders for pygmys. So i thought i could get 2 does and breed them to help out with there food cost. Maybe not pay for it al but at least help. If i do breed pygmys what do i look for? I had someone offer me a mother and daughter pair yesterday so im waiting on pics to see them. Do you have to separate the mom and babies to wean or do they wean themselves? Hard thing to find will be a billy i plan on not having a billy and hopefully i can rent one when i need him. O how determined can goats be when there in rut or heat? There are boars goats next door and im sure a boar buck breeding my girls will kill mine. The fence is the same fence thats been there for ages its got trees and bushes in it. But its 7 to 8 ft high and its got the small squares like cattle panel only flexible. I dont think they could get threw but want to be sure. As he likes to keep his billy by my side.
