for people who love the littlest dairy goats
This is our first time breading our NDG and one of the dams is rejecting one of her twins. I don't know why this is happening or how to get her to re-welcome her kid. The only thing I can think of is that she lost her dams scent when people were here holding the kids :( if anyone has some advice I would love to hear! Thanks Katey
I need more details. Can you explain what is happening? When were the kids born? Hopefully both have nursed. If not, the one has probably already died by now, so I hope that's not the case. What exactly do you mean by "rejecting"?
Just realized I'm about to go to bed, so here are a couple of quick thoughts. If you just mean that she is not letting the kid nurse, then you have to feed it with a bottle. Here is info on that:
You can also hold her and basically force her to let the kid nurse.
