:? I guess I have read too many horror stories about goats killing other new goats and now I have been putting off adding my 4 month old ones to the "herd" of wethers and a few bucks. I have 10 adults (7 wethers and 3 bucks) and they all get along great with no problems and I have had them a year. The 3 bucks were added to the others last year when the herd decided to jump in wth kids pen with them so I guess they welcomed them. All are nigerians from the same breeder too. The ones I need to add are a nubian and nigoria and they are all the same size. I have 1 little nigerian that will stay small so I dont want to add him in with the adults and may put him in with the 10week olds since they are about the same size. If I dont move them in with the adults I have another area ready that is wooded and I have been freaking out over the fact there might be a leaf from a chock cherry tree in there that they might eat or something else that might kill them. I tried to blow most the leaves out and discoverd a yellow jacket nest outside of the pen, but close enough not to like the noise. You see all the time people getting goats to clear land so I am trying to tell myself it will be ok, but I would not forgive myself if I moved them and they died. I dont know what to do at this point..I'm so confused and scared to do the wrong thing, but the boys need to be away from the girls ASAP before they breed too young. :?
