Kids are all dam raised unless bottle feeding
becomes necessary do to lack of interest from the doe, poor milk
production by the doe or too many kids for the doe to accommodate such
as is the case with some triplet groups and with quadruplets. Even when
supplemented with bottle feedings all kids remain with their dams and
The kids are socialized everyday and are
friendly and use to being handled by the time they are ready to be
weaned between 9 to 12 weeks of age.
Kids are introduced to solid foods, grains and
hay, at 2 - 3 weeks of age and are eating well by the time they are
weaned from their dam's. They will also be accustom to sampling pasture
grasses and woody browse while out with the rest of the herd.
