    I am goatwoman from North Texas. I have Rhode Island Reds and three chickens that I have no clue about. I also have Nubian goats. My buck has a chronic cough. I was wondering if any of you chicken people also have goats and might be able to help me out with this coughing problem.

    Goatwoman, I don't know why, but your id made me laugh! [​IMG] from Tucson, AZ. I don't know much about goats ( [​IMG] ) but I'm sure there are lots of goat keepers here.

    Hi Goatwoman - Welcome, we're new too! Used to have Boer goats, but gave them up in favor of chickens [​IMG] It's been a few years, but I seem to remember a chronic cough being from (among other things) some type of worms. Maybe he is just allergic to chickens!

    [​IMG] from N. Calif! that chronic cough could be parasites, Im assuming its more than just the hacking up cud to chew?
    there are online goat sites such as goat wisdom.com which might help, good luck!
