    If you have dairy goats you don't have to milk them! If you just let the does raise their own kids you are fine. My absolute favorites are Lamanachas. They are docile and love love love attention. Big dogs, have had almost every breed of goat growing up and they are my favorite by a LONG shot. Pygmys are neat but they can get real bossy, don't know much about Nigerians though but when my dd is a little older I plan on getting her lamancahas! Just my 2 cents!

    They have to either be blood tested or checked very very young! Don't want to mess with full sized male!! My ex boss has both whites and blacks and the blacks are my favs!! Love the babies they are too cute!!

    We went with unmedicated here since we don't have much interaction with other birds or even much in the way of other foot traffic at our place. TSC has Purina/ Layena and DuMor chick starter, we didn't have troubles with either, but others on here have been feeding chicks a lot longer than us! MannaPro has a chick starter too, but I think their's is medicated.

    Don't apologize for sticking to your guns and stating your case!
    (but then again, I can honestly say I've never been accused of being Politically Correct when it comes to me stating my opinions either! [​IMG] )


    Edited to fix my Purina/Layena flub... I should know better than to try to remember names when I just got off of a 24 hr shift! <<insert head slap here>>

    Joining the APA is great! Join the ABC too, Ameraucana Breeders Association. http://www.ameraucana.org/

    The thread is, https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...for-posting-pictures-and-discussing-our-birds

    Post pics! I love seeing other peoples birds, no one on this thread seems to have them, they are my favorite. I am doing a lacing project for the blues. I have black, blue, and splash. I am very excited for breeding season. I have been hatching other people eggs since fall, all my birds are running together right now. I don't want to make chicks that I don't know the parentage this year. Wanna track faults and such.

    Welcome aboard.

    I admit it, I really thought you said you were trying to hatch some Buff Orpingtons from your sister-in-law. Now I must clean the coffee off my monitor.

    Yes, there are. I believe you live in York. There are 3 4-H goat clubs. One is in Southern York co. The other 2 meet at the 4-H center. You can call the Penn State Extension office for more info.
