my goats are also a dairy goat, nigerian dwarf goat… they are small but can produce an amazing amount of milk… i find it is also easier to find good homes for the smaller goat:)
right now I dont milk but plan to maybe next year … my youngest will be 2 in april so things are hectic. i would like to make goats milk soap!!
boys that arent buck quality i wether around 5, 6 weeks so that way they get a good pet home… intact males that arent buck quality are harder to place in homes and usually end up food eventually!!
if i am keepng a doe i just let mommy wean them naturally other then that i pull babies when they go to their new homes.
intact males will be weaned at 7 weeks and wethers i let stay with mom till they go to new homes!
goats are soo much fun to have!!!
o, i do have one fainter goat, talk about funny!!! poor little girls is always locking up and falling over,lol.
