Well, it all started with me wanting to find a bottle baby goat to raise with my family to keep as a pet. I found someone who was getting rid of a bottle billy because they didn't have the need for more males in the herd. So, I got this little guy at just 24 hours old and he has been a great little dude to have around the house. He has been eating and eliminating very well and has started gaining weight. He plays and runs through the house with my 3 year old son and they are just best buds. Now, here comes my interesting surprise... My little goat is not a he, but a she with boy parts...this little goat has an inactive penis and two testicles...but has girl parts that are active that he/she urinates from. Has anyone ever experienced something like this? I had completely thought he was a boy until I caught him going to the bathroom and instantly knew that boys would not be peeing from that area! So, what can I do? I was hoping to get him neutered (turned into a wether) but now I'm worried that could cause problems??? Also, what would cause this? I have phone calls into vets, but they all told me that they would have to research it as they haven't heard of such a thing. They have heard of them having both parts in one general area, but not both complete sets of genetalia. Ugh! My first goat and I end up with something so confusing. Maybe I should go play the lottery This is Zeigen...he is a Boer/Nubian cross and his birthday is 1/9/2011 at 12:03 pm...and he no longer stays in that box...that is just what I brought him home in...he now just runs around the house following me where ever I go. His bottle is different now too...I actually have a livestock bottle with a lamb/kid nipple on it. That was the bottle he was given to me with. I'm willing to bet the person I got him from didn't know anything about hand rearing a goat kid.
