Hello all! My 6 month old Nigerian dwarf has been moving her mouth/jaw weird the past three days. She is like slightly opening her mouth and then moving her bottom jaw back n forth. Any thoughts? I've never seen her do this. Thank you!

Mine do it too. Sometimes they yawn, close their eyes and work the lower jaw from side to side, the more I laugh, the more they do it. These goats are so full of personality. I have owned many pets and different livestock over the years and nothing compares to these goats. I can tell when I walk up what mood they are in, happy, sad, scared, don't feel good, after shots they will pout and look away from me for a day or two. In January I can tell the instant I get out of the truck, that there is a new kid somewhere on the property. The other does meet me at the gate almost tap dancing they are so excited, I don't even have to look for the newborn they will lead me right to the kid. This little long legged Saanen x Kiko doeling named Lily was born on a snowy morning, hidden in thick brush on the backside of 20 acres ( in true Kiko fashion), the other does and new kids ran in front of me stopping to look over their shoulders to make sure I was coming.
