Today I started weaning my 6kids. They are 7 1/2 weeks old. One is being sold next week. Today has been one of the most stressful days of my life.the bawling is nonstop. I don’t think th3 kids are eating. I really need them to eat because I out the dewormer pellets in the feeders. Probably a dumb move until the6 we’re settled down. These are things a newbie just doesnn know. I was on BYC, there are a few goat people on there. We have our own thread. We talk only about goats...leave the feast of the yucky junk tha5 happens over there, we stay out o& it!! Well, the one woman has had goats a long time. She’s in her mid 60s. She said she’d sell them at 8 weeks..the left overs weaned naturally. Is that a thing? Could that really happen here? I kind of doubt it since I’m only selling one. Keeping five.it would sure be easier one, if I let it go back as it was...but, I want to rebreed the moms this fall..and maybe two kids later in the year? Depending on growth rate. So, kids nursing up till then, simply jus5 forces weaning, but when the6 are much( older? I guess I was confused, because she was the only one I ever heard say she didn’t wean.
