My mother & I are building a coop & run for 5 sex link chickens. We're gradually transitioning to homesteading & we're vegetarian so the thought of knowing our eggs come from healthy & loved chickens is what we love most about it. But we're also wanting to have our own supply of milk & other dairy products but we don't have the room or money for a dairy cow right now so I read that goats are great for a backyard homesteader. Our only concern right now is what to do with the kids once they get older?? I read that getting 2 goats, at least, is better than 1 so we would get 2 initial goats but probably a doe & a wether since we're not wanting to start breeding goats but just have some milk, etc for 2 people & 1 doe would be sufficient & this way we'd get to have a girl & a boy. But back to our concern. Do you guys have any tips for finding good pet homes for goats? We will not sell them for meat/to a home that will kill them for meat. I found this site called Fiasco Farms & they're vegetarians as well & sell to pet homes only but they took away their email address due to an overload of questions so I have no way of contacting them to ask them what they do. Thanks guys! Also, we're thinking about getting Lamanchas but do you guys have recommendations for first time breeds that produce a good supply of milk but are also friendly & loving and where we should go (whether online or by foot) to get the goats? We live in Alabama.
