I agree! Still giving bottles 2x a day to my little pygmy x ND crossWe feed all of our growing kids a balanced feed. Half cup in morning and half cup in evening sounds fine.
Orchard/Alfalfa hay is fine.
As to the 5-6 week old, that's a little too young for weaning in my opinion.
Just got my 11 week old ND to 1 bottle a day, and I am slowly reducing the milk replacer amount.
Right now, I am giving a bit smaller than a handful of Purina Goat grower in a communal feeding trough to my goats. I have Manna Pro Goat Mineral (it has AC in it) and baking soda out in two areas 24/7, and even sprinkle some on their feed every morning. I have a deep fear of my wether getting UC
Thanks for the info!
