    My doe, JackieO is due to kid this week and I want to have all kids disbudded. No one in my area seems to want to do mini goats and I'm not sure where to turn. Ideas? I will ask my vet but am thinking that will be a no go as well. I don't want to try doing it myself having never had anyone show me and I've never seen one done. HELP!!! I want to have it done in a timely manner so scurs will be less of a problem. :whatgoat:

    Check your local craigslist for those selling disbudded Nigerians. They may be able to tell you who does their goats or if they do their own they might be able to help you.
