I have a 7 year old doe who was very definitely bred on 6/4 and 6/5, which puts her at day 153ish.  I was confident that she had settled, as she didn't come back into heat (the buck was still here at…Continue

We had our first kidding almost 3 weeks ago (2 bucklings and a doeling) and it went really well! We disbudded on day 3 (or 4?). I wanted to do a third go around on each bud but my husband stopped me…Continue

"I can see the issues with pen breeding, but with doing buck leases, and having both mini nubians and nigerian dwarf does, it makes most sense for us to just pend and house the buck with whichever does we plan to breed.  This guy bred the doe in…"
