Kidding is just around the corner...we have six does due to freshen around the middle of February. Monique, Migonne, Hattie, Madeline, Madeson and Denala are due to kid February 20th. Migonne pictured to the left is just about ready to pop.
It is time to get the playpens out and stock up on bottle nipples, towels and blankets. Kidding brings on a time of exhausting excitement for us. Having 6 does all kid in a week will be exhausting but it is nice to have your kids come in little batches. After our February kidding, Arabella and Helana are due to kid in March, then Netra and Essie in April and Heiress, Mila and Kikidee in June......Oh my we are going to be busy.
If you are interested in a doe or buck kid contact us directly by email or by phone. We can not keep as many doe kids as we did last year and we would love to have them go to wonderful homes that are interested in first and foremost taking exceptional care of their goat, interested in outstanding genetic lines and the potential to show, and owners that will keep in contact with me so I can keep track of the development of does and bucks produced from our herd.
We always stress taking outstanding care of your kids especially while they are growing their first year. There are great resources on the web about raising healthy kids. Kids will be available beginning mid March. We like to have kids leave the farm around 4-6 weeks of age. By this time they are well adjusted to the bottle/bucket and are eating hay and grain. They will have been on a coccocidia prevenative protocol, vaccinated for CD&T and received Selenium. Reserve a beautiful Hay Pritty kid today.
