In a post that I read earlier about what to do with excess bucks I noticed that a number of you had nigerians. After years of having nubians I decided I wanted to try nigerians. I have 3 does and a buck. Two of my does are bred and waiting for a rather small 9 1/2 month and now probably 35 lb. doe to grow a bit. I have 2 questions. I was planning to wait till this small doe was about 11 months old, but saw where they matured very earlier. What are your thoughts on this? My second question has to do with eye color. I know nigerians may also have blue eyes. Two of my does have light yellowish brown eyes and so does the buck. My little girl has very dark brown looking eyes. I believe that if I read the article right that if a brown eyed doe was bred to a brown eyed buck that they would only have brown eyed kids. Is that true. Just wondering if I need not be looking for any blue eyed kids or if I might get supprised? I also read that it was not good to breed two blue eyed animals to each other. Something about possible causing some kind of brain disorder. Know anything about this? Thanks.
