Hello, everyone- We got 4 Nigerian dwarf goats over a year ago, this means 3 does and one wether. So far, they've been fed basically with Hi-Fiber Hay and Molasses, although from time to time I've given them Alfalfa Hay only. A few months ago, I knew about considering corn on a 20% of the daily ration. So, I gave it a try. But two days later two of them have developed diarrhea so I stopped giving them corn and that problem was gone. Again, hay and hay and hay...at least for winter time, that's all they get. But these guys have become quite annoying. Since one the windows of the barn is facing directly the main door that we use to get in our home (the door to our laundry room and kitchen), they do not necessarily need to see me (although that's what they usually do) to start screaming and yelling at me. They only need to get any slight evidence of human presence to begin their chorus. I then give them Hi-Fiber Hay with Molasses. That puts them at ease for a while. It takes them 20-25 minutes to chew on it, leave a chewed-grass-like residual stuff on their feeder, get bored and then start screaming for more food. I then give them Alfalfa (not much actually). It calms them down. After 20 min. eating, they're done. Then, they come out of the barn to start looking around to check if I'm somewhere. Barely they spot me at a certain distance, and then their annoying "concert" begins. Honestly, embarrasing as it may sound, but a very few times when I've run out of options to get them settled down and seen my efforts kinda fruitless, I've lost my cool, taken a little tiny piece of branch of any trimmed bush around, and whipped their butts. Thanks to God, my wife isn't aware of this, otherwise it would obviously become a nice reason to raise Cain just for a while. Does anybody have ideas to help me out ? Any solution to get these guys settled down other than puting up with them or start crafting ideas on how to slaughter one of them (the black doe, which is the one with the highest-pitching-annoying scream) and have my first own tasty-grilled goat of my entire life so far? Thanks a bunch. Any help will be much appreciated.. nicefarmer4U.
