    Hi all, I have 3 nigerian dwarf goats (I think)They were given to me about 6 weeks ago, the previous owner didn`t want to be bothered with them anymore, it seemed like a good idea for me to take them, but now they are just in my way and I want to stick with my birds. 2 males and 1 female. father/mother/son. The older ones I was told are about 2or3 years old and the little boy is about a year old. the big male had an injured leg, he holds it up all the time(dog bite,previous owner)I beleive its healed, but he`s so used to be 3 legged, he doesn`t put it down to walk. i don`t know to be honest. Anyways, come get them. I`m in Ct. thanks Tony

    Tiffany, to the best of my knowledge, the males are not neutered and yes they are friendly once they get used to you. Actually the females very friendly, the males take a little time. they are all good goats, never aggressive. I`d prefer for the 3 to go together, I just want them GONE. I`ll try to post pics. asap. if you want them they are yours. Tony

    Hmm...I cant have males since I have 4 females now. That could cause me some problems pretty quick!!!! [​IMG] Or in about 5 months. But if you'd consider splitting them up, Im be game to take the female ASAP.

    Somoeone posted on backpage.com also with three miniature goats--thoguht maybe that was you!

    You could also post them on there. They would probably go quick. But be careful, for free they would most definatley go for food.

    Sorry I cant help out with the males, I dont have a set up to keep em separate. Maybe you can talk purplechicken into the males!

    Hey Tony--not to good with the orp chicks on this end--I had PMed you but I guess you didnt get it. He is doing his job out there but not much going on with the eggs yet. His favorite girls seems to be my RIR, who doesnt really lay much. That might be part of the problem. I am going to try another try in a few weeks. But we'll get you some one way or another! I hatched a BUNCH last summer!

    Is there a chance that the female goat is preggers? I had tried to breed one of my females with no luck so I would LOVE to have a pregnant doe! Drop her off on a Monday, then you can head over to the livestock auction and get some more chickens!!! Its down the street!
