    Just wondering, when can my pygmy goat get pregnant? She is 1 month old right now. Someone said if she is over 3 months.

    It all depends on the individual. Some can mature at 3 months. Most won't start coming into heat until the fall. Most start cycling around 5 month. The breeding season generally runs from August to January. I wouldn't breed until they are older than 8 months, waiting longer, until the second season isn't a bad idea to give them a chance to grow properly.
