    Hi everyone, my name's Allison and I'm looking into adding goats to my homestead. Im really interested in dairy goats, either nubian or dwarf Nigerian. I already have ducks and chickens and belong to the sister site Backyard Chicken. I find communities like this very helpful so I'm hoping to learn and gain support for this next adventure.

    A big howdy and welcome from the Great Lone Star State... where the stars at night ARE big and bright!

    Glad you found us, tickled pink you are posting.

    A gentle suggestion, please and thank you, would be for you to put a general location on your profile. No it doesn't mean we come and chat you up, rather it helps us give you better advise. Something that would be useful in Maine may not apply at all in Arizona.

    Goats are addicting. I started with 2 Nigerian Dwarfs and now have 19 and every one of them is a cutie and a joy. That's not counting the chickens, geese, ducks (got to be careful typing that word) and rabbits. Then there are the dogs. Life is busy.

    Well what the heck, anything worth saying is worth saying it two or three times. Sigh.
