Hi all,
Found this group trying to find out if I could hear babies with a stethoscope. I look forward to trying this afternoon.
I have a mixed breed group of goats a pigmy nanny, and wether, a nubian/boer cross nanny currently in milk but I think might be pregnant, a pure nubian nanny in milk working on weaning her kids and a ND billy who is a very skittish but effective stud! I never see him mount any of the girls but I have gotten 1 set of twins from the pigmy and 2 sets of triplets off my big girls. The pigmy nanny is about to drop again and I think my boer cross is pregnant again.
I am new to goats and most things farming.
I have been raising American guinea hog pigs for about 3.5yrs now and chickens for 4.

Welcome from another in VA. I've had AGHs, nice meat and for me, I like the smaller size. That's a mix of goats, for sure.☺️ But I have goats and mixes can be very good for a small homestead. Dual purpose for dairy/meat in one -- not max production but ample for home use. We love pics 🥰
