bigger buck pen, Bourbon Red poults

Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

We loaded up 11 goats in the trailer this morning and headed an hour away to Dr. Beckworth's. Because we're gonna cross state lines to Clemson, SC, each goat needed a health certificate from the Vet. $16 later (yes, just $16), we got the heath cetificates and a fecal check. Good news, after the fecal check, the Doc said he didn't see any stomach worms which is very rare in goats. Apparently, our worming medicine, Valbazen, does it's job.


We enlarged the buck pen and now the boys are tickled to be on a lot of lush greens.

Beau and [wethered] Cubby have the same mother, Cali.


Now we have an additional 20 Bourbon Red Turkey poults in the chick brooder.


That's a Bourbon Red Turkey turkey poult in front of a Rhode Island Red girl.

That is good about no stomach worms. Goats are hard to keep worm free.

They all are looking good. I know they are enjoying green stuff. Our goats were so happy when it greened up around here.

I want to try turkey poults soon.

Have a great weekend.

Awww, the chickies are so cute. So, how many Bourbon Red turkeys do you have? And how is Franklin these days?

I've never seen a poult that small. Amazing how they look just like chickens now. And they will look so different when they get bigger!

Are you going to be at the Clemson show this weekend? We'll be there too but with no goats. I need to get a fecal done soon.
