    twists girls get weaned.

    just finished "modifying" the "wean pen" this afternoon

    i technically just folded the last two chainlink panels of my market wether pen to make one half the size of the original

    its roughly 12' by 14'

    i'm just going to leave it permanent because i can use it for kidding, breeding, quarantine, and my market wethers ( we only ever have two anyway)

    its nice and its got its own shelter and feeders


    now it just needs toys and goats

    that is good news ... :) .as I have mentioned before......."but they were just born".. :shocked: .LOL :ROFL:
    sounds like you have a nice area for them ......shelter....feeders...that is a super spot...
    I don't think I'd use it for a sick pen...then put a doe kidding in it ...breeding ect... :(
    just a thought... :hug:

    i can clean it pretty good.. but i usually don't need to quarantine animals..

    just new goats, or goats that have booboo's , like poor gia when gabby sheared her teat..( much better now btw)

    Oh ...I know how you can get attached...it is hard sometimes.....but after they leave and especially when you are getting a new doe....and it is a surprise on top of that.... is so neat... :cool:
    you tend to move on and not worry about them....that much day by day...But you do know they are going to a good home.... :thumb:

    Yeah, I wish I could win the lottery so I could have a few more breeds of goats. I miss the minis a lot-but there just isn't a market for them around here unless they are pygmy or Nigerians. It is always nice to have a new doe to kind of take the "sting" off from having to sell the other ones.

    SDK, I hope you feel better soon. Nothing like being sick this time of year. It is already cold and all.
    So are you sure that those babies are ready to go already? WOW where has the time gone. It seems like just the other day you told us they were born. Do you wean them young? I wean at 3 months. Maybe I am in denial.
