There are not many creatures cuter than a newborn goat. Here is some information that will be helpful as you take care of these kids. Several days ahead of the due date, put the doe in a well-cleaned pen by herself with plenty of fresh bedding, water, and good hay. Make sure the kids get that all-important first drink of “colostrum,” or first milk. Kid goats are born with almost no immune system. It is very important that newborn kids receive milk from their mother does within the first few hours. If the kid does not start to nurse you’ll need to milk the doe and feed the kid with a bottle and lamb nipple. This thick, yellowish milk produced for the first few days after giving birth is essential for any newborn.
