    hehe, our neighbors live a mile away. LaManchas get really loud during heat, the Alpines don't seem to get as loud as they do :lol:

    well thankfully my minis don't scream or maa loudly when in heat, just only when they see me or want to be fed!

    But I do remember my oberhaslis being noisy when in heat. But I only had 2 and they hardly ever went into heat at the same time.

    I have a couple girls that can get pretty vocal when they are in heat, but nothing compares to my mini-Nubian buck. You can walk outside any time and think someone must be harming the poor boy because he sounds so pathetic. Silly boy.

    Nubs are noisy, I will grant that. But Ihave 2 Manchas A young doe and wehter and they are the LOUDEST little buggers I have!!! Scream now, scream later, scream cuz mom is there, scream cuz the dog is there, just SCREAM!! It always sounds like a goat massacre around here with those 2!! Thankfully I don't have REALLY close neoghbors, the ones I do have don't say anything, so thats good.

    Mine start screaming the second I step out of the house until they get fed. I have a few does that screech when they are in heat but some of them never make a peep and never show any signs which drives me nuts.

    Mine do not make a sound when in heat - it is my buck doing his tongue thing and that is it. Which is especially embarassing when someone is around and they have no idea what the heck is going on ... lol! :?

    The only time they get loud is when we have a window open in the house and they can hear us, when we are in the hot tub at night, or when I pull into the drive way or come outside, cause they think they are sooo starved .... hehe

    My goats start the "poor starving goat routine" the minute I walk outside, but the real culprit is one of my sheep. She sounds like a FOGHORN!!!

    Foghorn..thats way too funny!! Mine yell at me when its feeding time. They hear me from the back porch pouring their grain into containers & shaking it up with the BOSS they tell me they are starving to death when I get the paper in the morning, or when we go somewhere and they hear the truck or car door..'Mommys home lets let her know how neglected we are!"
    When they are in heat the Boers aren't very vocal but the buck has noticed that the last doe is coming in and he's the one doing all the talking!! Balango has been flagging then running off..the little tease.
    But the Nubians scream bloody murder when they come in heat.
