omg! Through a fence! Holy crap. Well what would be considered full grown? I haven’t a clue like how big they are gonna get. I mean I have an idea, but don’t know for sure. I just didn’t know if there was like some kind of sweet spot to wait for. Like you know too young will kill them and too old will kill them. I suppose it can be another one of those “I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it” kind of deals like on if we want to eat any of the ones we raise or sell them. I guess the main thing is I don’t want them to have babies too early for them or too late. Would this mean I should separate them when I bring them home? The oldest ones I’m bringing home are 4 months. They are def not full grown. Is it still safe, for now, to let them be together?And they are guaranteed to get the girls pregnant when you don't want them to. And yes, I have heard that they can do it through a fence.
one last thing, our lawn mower broke like a month ago. We got a new one finally but now the hubby and I are trying to decide how to handle the yard since the goats are coming in. I was saying to mow and dry the grass out like hay in hopes they will eat it. He says to leave it and let the goats eat It. This grass is like 2.5-3 feet tall. thankfully chase has bored out his pathways. Lol. He does play in the grass though. Should we just cut it and rake it up and let them go at the shrubby around the fence and what ever starts growing or leave it and let them eat it?
