Hello!!! as you can tell from the title, i have some questions about Nigerian Dwarf does. I've done tons of research but i'm still laking in some more specific detailed answers. I will be getting one Nigerian Dwarf this summer, i currently have two pygmy wethers. I'll be going a farm to breed the doe once i get her. First, I read from countless articles that a Nigerian Dwarf (Let's go with "DW" for short) produces two cups of milk in the morning and again at night. Although i don't think i'll be milking her at night. is this information correct? 2nd, is it true they only have to be eight months old to breed?! seems a little too young to be breeding. Any suggestions on how long I should wait to breed the doe? 3rd, I hear the doe can milk up to two years after breeding, but how long do they usually have until they stop milking? i realize it depends on the goat, but i was hoping i could get an idea of how long until she'll stop milking. Is two years dramatically rare? 4th, I read they have a butterfat percentage of 6-10%. Is this true? Is this a good percentage? I know the higher it is the better, for making soup and cheese etc, but is it better to drink if it's thinner? and, is the butterfat gross to drink, like pulp in orange juice, or is it "one with the milk"? 5th, What are some good tips on weaning the "kids"? And, how do i introduce the kids to hay and grain, and whats to stop them from continuing to drink their mothers milk and not be interested in hay/grain? ~Added question -I just read that sometimes it can be dangerous for a small breed doe to breed with a big billy... Is this true, and are NGs too small to breed with larger billys such as Fainting/Alpine/Saanen etc....??? ~2nd Added question on one of my pygmy wethers i found tons of dandruff on his stomach this morning... Is this part of the shedding process? it's gotten warmer lately, so their shedding. I was grooming his fur when i discovered it. Anyone know why this happened or how i can fix it? i tried brushing it all out but it just keeps uncovering more of the dandruff flakes. Also, they where all on his tummy, not on his back.. (Here's a picture, they look like mites or lice in the picture, but i got one and looked closely, it's flaky.) Thank you for any feedback at all! Even if you couldn't answer them all!! Any Advice/Answers Are Appreciated! (yes i realize i made a sentence with all the words starting with "A". Praise anyone who can help me.
