  1. This coming kidding season will be my 2nd. My first was last year… Kids being born on 2/22/21 & 2/23/21. Backyard Goats is my “Go To” for all things goat. Last year, however, I didn’t see the need to know an exact breeding date, so I only had a guess on a kidding date. Thankfully, there were no issues with delivery. Unfortunately, we didn’t expect both does to kid within 24 hours of each other. So they were in the same stall in the barn together when Buttons, the second mama, delivered and Snowflake, the herd queen, actually stole her babies, and Buttons refused to tend to her babies. So I got a first hand look at the differences between bottle babies and dam raised babies.
    Thank you for sharing all your goat knowledge. Backyard Goats will always be my choice for any information Goat related!!
