    even though our 2nd little doeling wont arrive until mid- April, I'm interesting in hearing how others have introduced new and little with bigger. We are figuring that we will have to keep them separate to start.

    I don't think you will need to do anything. Your little gal will be so happy to have a friend and that little kid will be missing its mommy, poof, instant friendship. Over lunch of course. I always do introduction over food and out in the turn out/pasture as apposed to the in house/barn/ cage. That just ends up being territorial. Shes still so young, I really don't see there being an issue. Very happy for your little girl and you!

    thought I'd provide an update: We had a doeling reserved from a farm north of us, the doe is due mid April. Beginning of the week(right in the middle of our crazy snow falls), we received an email from them, they had decided to get out of the Nigerian Dwarfs but they would hold the doe we put a deposit on till she kidded for the doeling OR if we wanted they would sell us the bred doe(s)! Then we employed chicken math in the goat world.
