Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

When is the right time to introduce my new goats with my other goats. I have two goats  (Moose & Lola ), they are a 1yr old. Recently I rescued Oliver, he's about 7 weeks old. We have keep him in his own pen. He's been to the vet for his shots and is doing great. 

My question is I getting two more goats near the end of June,( Maxwell & Bella ) they will be about ten weeks old when I get them. Should I wait until I get them and put them all in the same pen at that time ? Or can Oliver go in now. I'm just worried because when we did put him in to say Hello he got head butted. Is he still to little.

One word I can say about Oliver is that he's feisty, and he's more like a jack rabbit. LOL

You will usually get a lot more responses if you put questions in the forum. This is a good one for Goats 101. People see the forum posts more because they're at the top of the home page. Blog posts are great for general updates on your goat or farm.
