Should I Keep Them?

In my ongoing goat saga the man I got my goat back from has 2 billy's - a Saanen and a Nubian. He told me I was more than welcome to bring my girls to his place and get them bred. So, since I was planning on keeping the two newest bucklings that are 3/4 Nubian and sons of this man's Nubian I had planned on breeding my girls to his Saanen. But, since Nubians by general concensus produce a higher fat content milk then I'm thinking maybe I should breed my girls to his Nubian billy but that would mean any girls from that breeding would be related to the 2 little billy's I was planning on keeping. Did I make any sense there? LOL

Anyway, so, should I keep the 2 little billys and breed to his Saanen or should I sell the 2 little billy's and breed to his Nubian billy then try to find an unrelated Nubian bottle billy?

With as easy and inexpensive it is (generally) to find an unrelated buck...I'd do all I can to sell the boys and buy fresh bloodlines.
