Silver medium haired mother, two years old, and her newborn twins, a boy and a girl.
There is not much cuter than a new born Pygmy kid, except two of them! These twins are female and male, a buckling and a doe or doeling. The buckling is on the left, a little bigger than the his sister. Mamma is a beautiful silver Pygmy and the sire was a longer haired Pygmy/Nigerian Dwarf billy, also called a buck. The mamma is very protective and would not let any other goat, dog or human near her new borns. She had them protected in the dog house behind her and when they were doing well, and were cleaned off, she moved them forward into the shelter. Pygmies are hardy little creatures and are up and nursing within minutes. As a matter of fact, the boy was first born and he was trying to nurse while his mother was still birthing his sister. These twins are the second pregnancy for the mother. Her first offspring was a little girl, and she had a single baby 3 days ago. Soon the other goats who are pregnant will be having kids too and the goat yard will be a lovely play area for the kids, who love to climb on anything, including other goats, and to run and jump. Most of the goats will be for sale, along with their kids. Females are $150 and males are $100. They can go to new homes in a few days for those who want to have bottle babies for pets. Bottle fed kids become extremely tame and friendly and are so much fun. Do you want one or two?
