Our new Billy Kid arrived yesterday. He will breed with our twin girls and Lord willing, we should have babies in September! (Goat gestation is 5 months). . He is a tri-colored Nigerian Dwarf. He’s the color or dark chocolate, light chocolate and a marshmallow so we are calling him Cocoa. He is 4 months old but ready to breed.
Nigerian dwarfs can breed year-round. Nigerian Dwarfs give birth after approximately 145 days of gestation. They usually have twins, but triplets or quadruplets are not uncommon. Cocoa is getting used to the twin girls. I’ll post photos of them together soon. Cocoa is a wee thing. He is only half the size of the girls.
Are you thinking “Why would anyone want goat babies?” Watch these video.
