    At what age can I take my little pygmy buckling to visit my co-workers? He is a week old today.
    I work at PetSmart, so I can take him in.
    How will his mom react upon his return?

    Depends on how long you will be gone. If like an hour or two he will be fine.

    I took Owen to see the hospital staff at one week of age and it was for like 2 hours I think. He did fine and his mom was happy to see him when he returned.

    If you are going to be away longer then that I say wait another week.

    I think they will enjoy seeing him :D

    My boss had pygmies when she was little and in college, and several of the girls I work with love his pictures.
    I take in my boers(one is 8months and the other is 6months) in all the time, they, goats and people, love it. Most of the dogs are scared of them, but they love dogs haha.

    I took my twins in at about 2 weeks old, Theyr were fine... MOM was a basket case!! By the time we got home with them I thought she was going to go into a massive corenary!! She was smellling them and licking them and talking to them like they had been gone a week... it was only an HOUR!!! I would take them in as long as its not to long.
