    HELP! How to care for doe and brand new kits?

    This is a first litter for this doe. And our first time breeding. We did remove the dead ones. There is a ton of fur in the nest now, so she's adding to the fur and covering them up well, at least. They are in a nesting box inside a hutch, inside a stall with only other rabbits in their...

    HELP! How to care for doe and brand new kits?

    I bred my Champagne D'argent doe to her buck a month ago, and she had her babies tonight! But two were dead by the time we found out she'd had them. I think she stomped on them in her nest. There are at least three alive right now. Do we need to do anything to make sure no more die? We...

    Sneezing, snotty, coughing goats! Help!

    The mucus is clear. They seemed better today, overall, as far as this goes. (but see my other post about the doe eating chicken feed.) How do I take their temps? What do I use to do this?

    My NDG doe got some chicken feed! Hard to wake up!

    Thank you so much! Is scours diarrhea? Is it hard to get them to eat yogurt? I normally give her grain when she's being milked. Should I just put hay in there instead? Will orchard grass hay work? Thanks!

    My NDG doe got some chicken feed! Hard to wake up!

    I checked on my goat and the wether was baa'ing, but the doe wasn't moving. They are Nigerian Dwarf goats, we've only had them a couple of days. Anyway, normally the doe will baa and come when we are out too. Her head was laying in some chicken feed, I couldn't wake her up at first. I had a...

    Sneezing, snotty, coughing goats! Help!

    I just got two Nigerian Dwarf goats a few days ago. One is a doe in milk (we are milking) and the other is her 4 month old wether son. I noticed when we got them they were sneezing a bit. Now they sneeze, have mucus in their noses (not a ton, but it's there) and I think I've heard a cough...
