    she sure did....poor lucky has a big hole in his chest now because he decided to get too close to the goat..how can i get her to not be so touchy?? she was supposed to be really sweet but she seems to not like anyone but her sister. luckily the duck is ok... we put neosporin on him and wrapped it up.

    Have your goats been around poultry, I know with mine, it took them awhile to get use to the birds. The would chase them, and one of my goats would ram my turkeys if they got too close, however since they have been around each other for so long now, there is no problem, you might just give it time.

    maybe thats it..the lady i got them from talked about how well socialized they were and all of that but to be honest, they seem to not really know much about being around anything. they are getting a bit friendlier though, ive been sitting in their pen and taking turns petting and loving on them.
