    Awe they are too cute. I love surprises like that. What kind of goats are they? The top pick sorta looks like Pigmy and the second look like it could be Nigi but hard to tell by pic. My nigi is about to kid anywhere from 5-15 days from now, but she looks like she is getting REAL close!

    I would recommend a BoSe shot.. need to get this from a vet unless you have some on hand.. another option (at least I keep a couple tubes on hand from Hoeggers) is Selenium E gel.. not as potent as BoSe but can work in a pinch.. also is there a chance that the kid could have been injured (during birth or mom stepping on it/laying on it after being born?) Just my thoughts.

    [​IMG] They are cute! Sounds like they need a dose of BoSe or Selenium/Vit E gel. If you can't get either of those you can crush up some selenium pills for people and give it to them.
