    I have a very serious question. I know goats are herd animals and can’t be singles but can a doodle make up the herd?

    Changing Kid Milk Replacer

    Can’t say for sure with goats but the suggested process for dogs is to do it over a weeks time. 2 days 1/4 of the new, days 3&4 1/2 and 1/2, days 5&6 3/4 of the new and by day 7 all new.
