I got a new goat with twins yesterday, they are all kinda scrawny, that is why I took them... Mom isn't really taking good care of them, she is too busy trying to eat. I thought they were newborn, they are so tiny, but I looked in their mouth and they have TEETH!!! So they have to be about 3 week old...now I am worried, I took them inside to see if I could get them to take some extra milk w/ a bottle, and they clammed right up. Won't take it. What can I do?? I don't want to lose these little darlings!! All my goats take care of their babies on their own, so I don't really know what to do for them. They also look like they have some sort of little bugs on their legs, like mites or something...how do I get rid of them? I think I bit off alot when I took these ladies in!!!
