Two more goat kids. pics

Carmella had her babies Sunday night. They were about 1 lb. Very light and tiny. Smallest kids ever born here.

She naturally had two bucklings since I wanted a doeling from her. :mad

I love this buckling. If he wasn't related to my does I'd keep him as a breeding buck.



This is the other buckling. Neither dam or sire are black. Lol. Kinda surprised us when he was born.


Mom & babies.

Re: Two more goat kids. pics

Congrats, they are beautiful! ...and it does seem odd that one is black with no black parent. In most genetic circles, black is the dominant color and will express every time, over any lighter colors. Perhaps goat genetics are different?

Why are these kids allowed to nurse the dam? Is it because they are bucks and won't be used for your breeding program?
*I hope I'm not confusing you with another member whose kids are all bottle-raised off of their dams...

Re: Two more goat kids. pics

Thanks!


The pygmys dam raise b/c they are not registered and they do not go to shows and they aren't sold as show goats that are raised on strict CAE prevention. And I dont want to milk a pygmy goat either...teats are way too small. lol

Only one more doe due to kid (due this weekend) then I am done. Thankgoodness. Last doe is a nubian bred to a REALLY nice buck so I am wanting a doeling out of her.

Re: Two more goat kids. pics

Beware: Stupid question coming up!

Is it just your Pygmies who aren't registered or is there no registry/showing for Pygmy goats?
I suspect if they were registered and show animals, you would probably hand milk/raise them?

Oh my goodness, they are so darned cute. Momma did a wonderful job brewing those two.

Re: Two more goat kids. pics

Thanks! Carmella takes after her grand-dam. Nica is the best mother I have ever seen.


Yes there is a Pygmy goat registry, National Pygmy Goat Association, I think is what its called. My pygmys are not registered. at the time, I didn't care about registration besides that, they were cheaper unregistered. lol I started with Pygmys and then ventured into the Nubian breed.
