I need help with two baby goats that arrived way before we expected. We got a New goat that was exposed to a buck we were told. She was supposed to be due in May. We figured we had time to get her in better condition and prepare for kids. Well, the kids arrived this evening and are Very small and thin, the dam wants no part of them, she is 3 and never kidded before. It's cold and snowing off and on. One is trying to nurse but the dam is kicking her and laying down if we try to hold her to nurse them. The other doeling won't try. She seems thin and cold. I don't even have supplies but can buy them in the morning. Can anyone give us any advice on saving these kids? What you feed and how much how often? If the dam wont take them can we raise them in a large dog crate with a heat lamp? Any links you would recommend for raising rejected kids? Can I do anything to get the dam to stop kicking them? Thank you for any help you can offer. I hope they can make it until I get to the farm store. Advice of what to buy? We thought we had time to read and get ready. The dam didn't even look pregnant so we weren't sure she was even bred . This all happened so fast. I would appreciate any advice you have. I'm trying to care for the kids, get the dam to feed them and look for reading material on raising kids in case she won't accept them. I ordered some books but the kids arrived before the books. I hope there are some goat people here.
