    Rejected lamb tries to access udder from the back, instead of the side

    She knows she can't take care of 3 lambs. If we have triplets we always pull one. we have tried leaving them on the ewe but either they turn out not as large and kind of weak or one dies. It's always better to pull the one she doesn't want. If you feed it a full 25lb bag of milk replacer it will...

    Suggestions please, kid won’t take bottle

    That's awesome! Glad you got him to take the bottle. We pull ours as soon as they are born and start them on a bottle right away so we can milk the mother. He will definitely do better if he is weaned at 2 months. Glad you got it to work!

    Nigerian Dwarf girl - First timer

    When she starts screaming she is having them. The best way to tell is her udder, if it's full of milk she will have it hopefully within the next few days, especially if her teats are full. although we have a goat that has had milk in her teats for a few months and has not had her babies yet...

    Suggestions please, kid won’t take bottle

    You can wean goat kids at a month easily. If our goat kids have been on the mother for a month we wean them then milk the mother. It doesn't pay to try and get it to take a bottle; it's impossible, they won't take a bottle if they have been eating off there mother. we had one that ate off her...
