    You might find more information on them on the internet if you spell the breed name right. It is Kiko not "Kikio". I don't keep meat goes, but I have read that true Kiko have better parasite resistance than boers. Of course, that depends on the breeder actually breeding for such a trait, and responsible use of antiparasitics.

    I bought a Kiko buck a few years ago. He was treated the same way as all my other goats. I got him because of all the good things I heard about them, but it didn't prove to be so. He was a jumper... couldn't keep him in. He was sooooooo loud! Still had to worm him, still had to trim his feet just as often, and his kids didn't grow out as nice ( Big and fast) as my dairy cross kids.
    Am I saying don't get one? No, just don't have unreal expectations.
