    Perfect. We have our own goats ao this will work.

    Our new boy is 20 grams. How much ahould he receive? I read 1 to 2 c.f. every 4 to 5 hours. Also can he skip night feedings?

    And quick off topic but can't find answer. If 5 weeka old does he need a heating pad still?

    Feed 5-7% of their body weight. Is your 5 weeker 20 grams? . Give them the heating pad until they don't use it anymore

    Hi dark. If yoy look at my post age identifier here you can see photos, can't SHARE on my phone. Long story short friend found brother dead, mother most likely killed by their cat. He is a little skinny but has done a great job eating. So we aren't sure age vut looks 5 weeks or more. Will use heating pad, this one turns off after 2 hours which reeks. Sigh.

    Hello I'm just wanting to know exactly how I mix the baby puppy powder I was using the liquid can and realized it was the wrong stuff to use. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you
