Anyone have goats now? I have 3 goats (2 pygmy and 1 pygmy boar) the goats are pretty funny to watch i made them a chainlink fenced yard and
put a few small boulders to play on and had an old dogloo that i gave them to play on also.. they are within sight of the house and are really a good time to watch their behavior as the are kinda crazy.. when i was putting in one of the rocks with the quad the one goat jumped on to it and was starring at me like waiting to get scolded!
anyone have any goat stories or experiences
i will try to post a few pics

my question is will my goats only get milk after kidding?
my goats are very funny they run and play like kids most of the time. cool part is we can watch them out the window of our house!!!

for pygmy goats, i do believe they will milk after kidding. they are not really milk goats. there are certain breeds that produce a lot more milk. i haven't milked mine and if i did it would only be for the fun of bottle feeding the kid goats.

The only problem with milking a pygmy goat is. You won't get nough milk from goat for a tall glass of milk. If you wan t milk you need a milking breed.

was told you should get between 1.5 and 2 qts a day that would be fine by me!!!
just like getting something for nothing already feed them everyday for nothing but to watch
read alot on internet from a bunch of different people they say the butter fat content makes the pygmy milk taste like some of the best
if i milked 2 goats that would be almost a gallon a day don't think we could use that much in a day
thanks for the advice
