We've raised plenty of these cuties. Were they not able to latch on? I noticed that you are bottle feeding?
No, they are 10 days premature and mom did not want anything to do with them once we found them. I don't think momma goat is feeling 100% and that is why she had them early. But we were undecided on whether we were going to bottle feed so this kind of decided it for us. Since they are bucklings we will not be keeping them more than like 4 weeks. If they were does I would have kept them on their momma because we plan on keeping all of our does. Since this is our first babies we are kind of enjoying having them in the house and bottle feeding! Ok, we are enjoying it a lot! Once we get them on grain they will be going back out to the goat house and at least staying in one of the stalls even if we are still bottle feeding.
