I am really confused about how much to feed dairy bottle kids. Mine are 2-3 weeks old. The person who I got them from had been giving them as much as they want. Given free choice, they will eat about 24 oz. 3 times a day. This weekend they will be 3 weeks old, and I will go to twice a day bottle feeding (hooray!). I am trying to follow Storey's Guild to Raising Dairy goats, but it makes no sense. In one place, Storey's book says: During their second week, they will probably work up to 12 oz., in three feedings 8 hours apart. And from then on, you can expect to feed 1 quart of milk to each kid, twice a day. Two paragraphs down, it's rephrased and written: This gradually increases to roughly 2 or 3 pints of milk or milk replacer a day until weaning. And on their chart it says: 32 oz, 2-3 times a day I can't make heads or tails out of this no matter how many times I re-read it. Am I supposed to be feeding a quart twice a day, or a quart split into two feedings per day??? It's obviously a big difference. They also are nibbling at fine stemmed grass hay and leafy alfalfa, and are nibbling at grain.
