  Pygora Goat Kids


All pygora kids will come with a Pre-Registration Certificate with the PBA (Pygora Breeders Association).  Final certification will need to be submitted by the new owners once the goat has come into "full fleece" anywhere from 6 months to 1 year of age.  All instructions and forms will be included with the "New Kid Packet" that all buyers will receive when picking up their "kids".  


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 siblings. 

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.   


Procedures performed prior to kids leaving for their new homes include;

- Disbudding                         - Castration of wethers between 7 & 12 weeks                      

- Vaccination for CD/T         - Tattoo Identification

- Microchipping                     - Initial Deworming
