    I got my first pygmy goats three years ago. A mama and her twin girls. I fell head over heels. The babies they have given me, along with my chickens, have brought joy to my life when I really needed it. I was very lucky to have mostly does. I had one buck out of 11 babies born in the last couple years. I found a VERY good home for him and he went there tonight. But now I am being the biggest crybaby!! [​IMG] I am so happy he is going to a good home but he is my first baby to leave. Sorry about writing a novel but I didn't expect it to be so hard. Thanks for taking the time to read my sob story. Is it always this hard to see them go?

    My does are going to have kids this summer and I'm praying they don't have any boys. I don't want to have to sell them, so I understand where your coming from. I don't even like rehoming my roosters.

    Thanks for understanding. I don't think I'm cut out for rehoming anyone and will just have to keep EVERYONE!! [​IMG]

    We had our first goats born in January, two bucks and a doe. The bucks both went to their new homes today. Their Mom was fine until it was time to put them away for the night. As soon as the gate was shut, she started bawling trying to find out where they were. She has quieted down now, but I felt really bad for her. I know how you feel!

    AWWWWW, it is hard to let go of something you birthed and raised for how ever short of a period. I am gonna go through the same thing with my chicks. I am hatching them for a co-worker.... The first one hatched today. [​IMG]

    aww,it can sure be tough.

    however, i have never had goats, perhaps you can tell me why you can keep the poor boys, and only keep the girls?

    discrimination i say!!!!!!!!

    Quote:Having bucks and wethers are like having too many roosters. Yes, it is discrimination! A lot of people eat their boys which I couldn't bring myself to do. To each their own. So rehoming is the next best option.
