    I was wondering, What is a goats favorite treat? Mine is a little scared from being in a new place and I want him to perk up!

    Hello, I don't feel real qualified to answer your question as I'm still having visits with my kids before bringing them home. But the dear lady who I'm getting them from gave me this list of treats that's ok for us to feed them. Feed only small portion during snack time. .... these are treats not main foods. AND MAKE SURE ALL PIECES ARE VERY SMALL To Avoid choking. Animal crackers broken in small pieces, raisins, cornchips, bread, watermelon pears, peaches, bananas, grapes, carrots, lettuce, celery, pumpkin, squash, spinach. Hope this is helpful. If yours are like mine it might just take time. Mine aren't really ok with me yet (haven't been over tons yet) but she said They take time to get used to you. Not much experience yet:) still learning myself and Didn't bring my babies home yet:) we are waiting until they are weaned.

    A friend had a few pygmy goats, they would just about climb a person for apple slices.
