I couldn't find a category for this, so I thought this might be an ok place to ask. If a buck is not going to be used for breeding, what age do you castrate him? I've heard 4 weeks, I've heard 8 weeks. I have a 6 week old that I will be keeping intact and he is already acting very bucky. I have a 4 week old that is going to be wethered, and he is not bucky at all, so I'm guessing the change will take place before he is 6 weeks old. If I wait untill he is 8 weeks old, will he revert to being sweet once he is castrated?
Also, how do you all do it? I am mostly interested in hearing about the bloodless methods, such as the Ritchey Nippers or the Burdizzo and their success rates and ease of use.
