They're barn-yard mixes lol
Cleo I'm pretty sure has some dairy in her (has a huge bag! No problem feeding all 3 kids). She's part Pygmy. The Dad is a Nigerian Dwarf-Cross.
I'm in Alberta Canada. About 80km North of Edmonton.
I picked up nipples, dug-out my old baby bottles and got milk replacer (calf was all they had, traveling to get goat tomorrow) to feed the little guy because I didn't know if she was standing for him. Well, my fears were unfounded. He's well-fed, warm and happy. She's accepted and feeding all her babies
I think I'll bottle feed (at least part of the time) the strongest one, Luci the black boy. Sell him as a bottle baby. Hopefully be able to milk Cleo since she won't be feeding 3 kids. Keep the little guy as a wether and Eddy, the doe, for breeding.
