    Tips?

    Hey everyone :)
    Tomorrow I will hopefully be bringing home a couple of pygmy goats to our farm! These will be the first goats we ever have had. We are getting them from an auction but I don't get to talk with the breeder. I am just wondering what to feed them ? And other tips on keeping pygmies.

    Good quality hay, water and a mineral block.

    I don't feed my Nigerian Dwarfs, they eat hay with the cows, drink the horse water and help themselves to scratch with the chickens. Pretty much self-sufficient.

    Check your fences, if they can't go through it they will go over it, under it, or just tear it apart. I gave up since my property is large enough they don't leave and let them roam loose.

    This is indeed the biggest problem with goats.

    Okay thanks :) it turns out because of a storm I can't get them until next week :( But that gives me a bit more time to prepare myself and come up with another name. Oh and any good names for a Doe? I have Jazzy picked out for one but can't decide on the other.
