Hi! I really want goats, but for reasons unknown, my dad just is not convinced. We are zoned for goats. I've read dozens of books and none answer these questions. 1.) If I got a bottle baby and I bond with her, could I just keep one? I'm homeschooled so I'm home most the time. 2.) If I'm not able to keep just one doe, could I keep a doe and a buck together outside of the rut? I'm prepared to build a separate pen and run for the buck. And yes, I have been around bucks in the rut. They are amusing. 3.) I own a black lab (6 years old) and he's been raised with chickens and toddlers from birth, would he be good with the goats? We've never had him mess with anything, the duck sleeps next to him. 4.) I'd have to buy them myself, could I build like a small lean-to type shed out of pallets? I could also expand off of my chicken coop. 5.) If a goat was raised with chickens/ducks, would she be gentle with them? Any comments/concerns and answers are welcome! -Liv PS I'd be getting Nigerian, Nigerian X Nubian, or Saanan X Nigerian. Thank you ahead of time!
