So my nigerian dwarves are now one year old and are still very skittish and shy of us. We really wanted them as pets and even through the best of our efforts we cannot get them to trust us. We watch them through the back window. they play and leap of the deck and have so much fun. they are terribly cute and lovable. Unfortunately they were not bottle fed and we just cant seem to get them to want to be scratched behind the ears. They will eat from our hands but once the food is gone they bolt. They love our dog and play with him, just not us. so we are toying with the idea of breeding and bottlefeeding the babies. Are they old enough to kid? is now the right time to find a stud if we wanted a baby by spring? is there any pertinent info we should know? I just went out and bought a book on the subject but also wanted to hear from my BYCers whom i trust more than anyone else when it somes to these things. thanks!
