My 4 goat babies are 3 and 4 weeks old, how do they learn to eat grain if the mother's take it all? Do you put them in a pen and leave them with grain in a bowl which I have done and they want touch it. they will get up and try to eat with Mama but she does not allow them any? So how are you getting them on grain.....I think I read that most will eat by 3 weeks even though they are not weaned until around 12 weeks. I notice also that the mothers seem to not be letting them nurse that much as if she is trying to wean them off???? They are nibbling hay and they are always nibbling my fingers as if they are hungry. how do most of you handle allowing the little one to eat? Do you ever have a place with an opening that is just big enough for the little ones to go into that has feed? Or is this something at their age that I should not be concerned about????
