Kids are available as bottle babies at 3-7 days old, to experienced homes only, or can be held until weaning. After 7 days old, kids are sold as dam raised only. We keep kids on their dam for 2-3 days to ensure plenty of colostrum has been ingested.
Weaned kids must be picked up by 8 weeks of age.
Bucklings being sold as pet quality only-banding will be discussed with buyer. Due to medical recommendations, it's best to band at 12 weeks. We are open to allowing buyer to do the banding after buying. Pet bucklings/wethers will NOT be sold with registration. WE ARE LOOKING INTO BURDIZZO OPTIONS AT THIS TIME & HOPE TO HAVE THIS OPTION AVAILABLE.
An additional fee of $15.00 per day, per kid, will apply to all goats not picked up by their respective age or arranged pick up time, unless other arrangements have been made and agreed upon.
Kids are only sold in pairs UNLESS the buyer has other goats. We will not sell kids to be the "only kid".
All kids are disbudded, tattooed and receive their first CD/T vaccine unless purchased before they are old enough for it.
