First kidding for us yesterday! 2 does (2.4 lbs ea) 1 buck (2.3 lbs). We're still having 20-40's temps here - which is extremely unusual so wasn't planning on cold-weather issues when we bred last…Continue

pregnancy/pre-kidding checklist

some time ago there was a conversation about things to look out for/do in the last couple week-month before kidding. I had it saved to computer, which died :(  Now on tablet, tried searching, but so far no luck. Would anyone happen t0 have that info, or link to it, handy?  It included increasing grain last 2 weeks, supplements to give just before kidding, etc.  We've never had an issue, but I just know since I can't find/remember it all, this will be the year.  TIASee More

"If you dose the doe, that will increase the copper level in her milk. The kids should not need any type of dewormer until after they're weaned. I've never given kids a bolus before 2 months of age. "

COWP dose for kids

Looking through archives I've found several dosing recommendations for different weight ranges, the lowest being 1 gram per 20# body weight. What about kids (presently 2 wks old)? Doe has signs of deficiency, but also want to use for parasite control for everyone. What dose/age do you start w/kids?See More

"Glad to know he's still hanging in there! As long as he got colostrum at birth, he's fine with raw mama's milk now. And frankly if he didn't get colostrum at birth, it would be too late to try anything now. They need colostrum…"

"I'm so happy to hear that he is trying to bounce around. Here's hoping he has turned the corner and will survive. Homemade colostrum sounds better than no colostrum but I have no experience yet with kids. Hopefully this spring.. Best of…"
