    Very cute indeed!

    They are 6 weeks old, though? Goat kids should stay with their mother until they are at least 8 weeks old - if they are eating hay/grain and drinking water at this point they should be OK, but you'll want to monitor them anyway.

    How did you come across them? Have they gotten their CD&T vaccinations or have they been on a coccidia treatment plan yet?

    The pictures are too small for my old eyes....lol If their bellies don't get that rounded feel after eating you might want to put them on a bottle for another week or so. You can use whole cow milk from the store if goat milk isn't available.
    Sometimes jerks will sell them too young to take advantage of the cute baby factor.

    I forgot about this thread. But yes they were 6 weeks old when we got them, were already eating grains and hay. I bought them from a breeder and they had their shots already. They are now almost 15 weeks old. They LOVE to climb things and adore cats, chickens, and dogs. They are such sweethearts and love attention. They are eating alot of my favorite bushes though, but they are worth it. Tomorrow I will try to take some more recent (and bigger) pictures [​IMG] But tomorrow is also day 21 for my silkie eggs so maybe taking pictures of the goats will keeping me away from the incubator for a little while [​IMG]
