rehoming goats to large herd

I have an opportunity to rehome my 3 wethers to a herd of 38 goats. They've always been a herd of 3 since I got them 4 years ago.

Do goats like that fit into a new larger herd?

They will do their normal head butting routines to see who gets in which slot of the pecking order, but they should do fine as long as they have a large enough pasture/pen

They'll be fine, especially as they have each other to buddy up with.

They withdrew their offer so it looks like the boys will be home for another year. Good thing because I just bought $150 worth of hay.

Glad to see your boys are staying with you at least for another year. They couldn't get much attention in a herd that size & would miss you.
