The big one seems to be doing better, she's quite vocal. Her sister is starting to concern me, not much of a talker and still very wobbly trying to walk....

If you can get some of the placenta from when they were born rub some on them and give them a milk bottle while you are with their mother. some times they will take them this way, it may take a few times but you need to keep them smelling like ma and feed them with her, let them in the pen while you milk her.

I have a nanny goat who's udder hangs too close too the ground for the babies to suck, they stay with her all the time but come in the house 3 times a day for me to feed them, they wait at the gate until I let them in and are very impatient if lunch is late, she is a Nubian milk goat and puts out at least a gallon of milk a day.

They finally got what the bottle is, so I'm gonna milk mom for the next couple days and bottle raise them. After all Easter isn't that far off.

Part of a goats diet is wood and paper is wood, they eat leaves twigs and bark along with grass, poison Ivy , vines, fruits, you don't want to give them junk mail that might be printed with metallic inks but the feed sacks are printed with a soy based ink.

Ever been around goats? Most are pretty wise to what they can and cannot consume... now what they will and will not consume is a different story...:biggrin-new:

Potato plants are very poisonous, human mothers have on more than one occasion killed their children by feeding them potato vines.

Most of the time you just get real sick but there are many recorded deaths, don't eat potatoes that have turned green or sprouts on potatoes.
