    I recently got a doe and buck
    Buck 2 weeks old about 3 now (have had him a week)
    Doe was told about 5 days no more than a week. 2 weeks now. She's tiny compared to him. Both Nubians

    He's doing great got dehorned and is running around
    Her she's slacking on feeding she won't take bottle as of yesterday after her dehorning. She eats but won't finish
    I'm going to get another nipple maybe flow is to strong. Why has she cut down her eating and what's her normal intake.
    I've read so many post I really don't know what amount she should be eating

    [​IMG]sorry I don't know anything about goats but, lots of the BYCERS have them. Some of them may see your post and give you good advice. Redsoxs has given you a very good link as well.

    G’Day from down under shining5starz [​IMG] Welcome!

    redsoxs has already given you links to some good starting points so I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
