We have 8 Boer does that were born in Feb and mar, we bought them a month ago. We weighed them 2 weeks ago and again on Sunday, their rate of gain per day was .387 of a pound, is this about right? I appreciate all replies.

No I am not creep feeding them. I was worried about feeding too much. I am feeding noble goat twice a day ( 4 pounds each time ) free choice hay and mineral. Can I keep feed in front of them all the time? Thanks

For kids, yes you can keep feed in front of them all the time. They will limit themselves. I usually free feed all of my kids until the fall, then they get cut back to twice a day. Usually by then they are eating way too much to keep free feeding them and if they are going to be left dry they will get too fat.
