Posted last week about new born kid. Thanks to all who responded with help. She is now taking the bottle and doing fine. Am concerned about her getting enough exercise as we are keeping her in the kitchen. We let her run after feeding a while in the kitchen, but we are getting more exercise that her by running behind her with a towel. Canít put her in yard as dog would eat her, donít want to put her with other goats as they might hurt her,will when she is bigger. Question: when can we start feeding her solid feed and what kind. Has you can tell by question, donít know much about goats. Bought them for pets for my grand daughter. BTW My son and daughter-in-law blessed us with another grand daughter Wed. night...........Ray

Mine are with the mother, but they have always started eating grain and hay right away, usually at 1-2 days old they are trying to munch hay, ,...JIm

Do you have a little fenced in area that is away from the dogs that you can put her in for an hour or so a day? Just a thought....

Anyway, Congrats on the new grand daughter.

I wouldn't worry too much about her being or becoming a pet. Just be careful she doesn't become a "House" pet. I had one for the granddotters that was like yours, bottle fed, mamma died, and after she gtrew up we had a he of a time keeping her out of the house. I can't remember how many times I had to replace the screen wire on the back door. I bought it by the roll in those days.

Baby, our goat was bottle fed for a month and she did begin to look at us as her herd, but after she had her first kid she started hanging out with the other goats.
