    Goat appears to be sick/weak

    To sum this up, quickly: She was a bit lethargic, but improved today and has moved around more- never far into the pasture though. She may or may not have vomited, but I strongly believe she didn't since the only evidence I had was a wet/dirty jaw and mouth. She wasn't very vocal, but also...

    New goats!

    Hello! I just got goats for the first time and just wanted to show them off.

    Goats with Cocci?

    I’m familiar with Coccidiosis in chickens.. but with goats I’m not all much familiar with. How can we treat our goats for this disease? What medication? Dosage? If this isn’t where to post this, I honestly apologize..

    To 'save' or not to save?

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted a thread! :frow I recently visited a family friend's house(before coronavirus hit us), and I was surprised as I was greeted by a small goat. I believe it was an Alpine goat but I'm not sure. Not really a goat expert. They explained to us that they had...

She’s a normal height, very long body and nicely built, and at fair, we were told she was built very well, with a nice long body and neck, but simple too small. She has no depth, little width, and I just...

    Turkeys and Goats on same pasture

    Hi everyone, I'm new to turkeys and goats but I'm playing around with the idea of having them share pasture. I know housing chickens and turkeys together can come with its own challenges, such as them sharing diseases, especially Histomoniasis/Blackhead. Then I had this idea that perhaps I could...

    Goat constipation

    My girl just got over a bad case of scours where she lost a lot of weight. There doesn't seem to be bloating. Is there any way to stop the constipation without starting up the diarrhea again?
