    I bought a Nigerian Dwarf doe today that is supposedly about 1 month pregnant. I'm giving her hay free choice, but am wondering how many cups of grain to feed her a day. Any info would be appreciated [​IMG]

    I brought him home, cleaned up the wound and used the spray bandage on him. He's eating, drinking and mating like normal [​IMG]

    A cup is probably good...it's just frustrating because I've been trying to do all this research... and all it says is to make sure not to overfeed the grain...but doesn't specify what is overfeeding [​IMG]
