    We are picking up two bottle babies to join our small herd. The ones we have currently are Nigerian dwarfs and we got them after they were weaned. The ones we are getting are sanann/Nubian and Nubian/lamancha mixes that are a few days old. We'd like to put some diapers on them and keep them inside till it gets warmer out. What size diaper do you think they'd wear? What about baby onsie size?

    I have used diapers on baby goats, but I am not much help. I used them on preemies and I used the smallest size I could find. If I were you I would measure the kids around the middle and then call the diaper company and ask about sizing. There should be a customer help line. I'm not sure I would mention that the diapers were for baby goats.

    Does anyone mix baby goats with chickens?

    The hardest part about keeping goats with chickens (other than the fact that they destroy lots of stuff) is that it's difficult to separate food. Goats should not be eating chicken food and goat food really isn't the best for chickens either (though it will cause less issue in chickens than chicken feed causes for goats).
