Hello All,

Today we will be adding a new member to our flock, a Mini Billy, he is about about 10 months old we were told. I am not new to having goats, just never a mini and was wondering if they require any special care over the larger breeds of goats?

I know goats are a herd animal and a person should have two. It's our understanding he is a loner and was not being kept with other goats, just poultry. Would a girlfriend for Billy be a good thing so he wont be goat lonely?

Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated, Thank you :)

We have small goat and bigger goats together, they do just fine with each other. Goats can easily get parasite depending were you live. Your Billy's will probably do just fine, he mine head butt a couple of times and be down.

That's great to know mini's and larger breeds of goats will be ok being together. So a larger doe will be fine will Billy when he decides to be all romantic with her? :confused:

I understand where there is a will, there is a way and didn't know if him a mini trying to breed her a larger doe, would be an issue?
