How early is too early to wean? I have two babies that are about 6 weeks old, both are eating well, hay and grain and I assume drinking water. The reason I ask is tonight I discovered a Mt. Lion has moved into the neighborhood and I am worried about them being out in the pen with the big girls. I don't have room in my barn for all of them (7) and would at least like to get the babies out of harms way.
