    First time dealing with scours. What do I give him?

    Thank you so much. I went out to check on them about 30 min ago and it seems that his stools might hardening a bit, but still not where they need to be. Hopefully he will continue to head in the right direction.

    First time dealing with scours. What do I give him?

    I did not know that about the heat. It had been unusually hot this time of year in TX. Texas summers are always hot, but we normally do not see above 100 until late July/August. This year it wasted no time getting above 100. I will call the vet and see what he suggests. Thank you.

    First time dealing with scours. What do I give him?

    Thank you so much for your help. So far, he is acting normal, just has diarrhea. I do not see anything about giving a second dose on the box. I will give him 5 days from the day I gave it to him, which was yesterday, and then give him another dose if needed. Does that seem like enough time in...

However, Huck is not that heavy and is probably only 30 to 40 lbs. I am not sure...

    First time dealing with scours. What do I give him?

    Hello ya'll, My young wether, Huck, has scours. He is 6 months old. I am not sure how much he weighs. When I fed them this morning, I noticed he had it on his hind end and leg and I saw a few spots on his on the ground. It appears to be a greenish color..greenish/brown maybe and there is no...

    This question is for those of you who have chickens and goats

    I know you know that my chickens and goats are literally in my backyard on almost an acre. We have an area on the side of the house sectioned off for the goats and then another area sectioned off with a really poorly made chicken run. I had no idea what I was doing really and had not found any...

Luckily my neighbors are not super close like a subdivision and the people that purchased the house next to us, closest to the goat shelters, said the goats were one of the reasons they bought the house lol.

    What to you use in the summer for bedding?

    Okay next question how to you clean up the poop? It is easy to scoop out..sort of if you have something on the ground. Also, does she worry about poop/pee smell in their shelter? I just want to make sure we do not stink up the neighborhood. It surely saves me money to put nothing down.
