Our Nigerian Dwarf doe is due to kid next week. We had planned on dam-raising the kids, but I think someone mentioned in a thread that even if you dam-raise them, you can still give them one bottle a day to keep them extra friendly. How would I do this? When would I start - from just a day or 2 old? When would be best to milk the mother to get enough for the bottle feeding? Also, someone told me not to start handling dam-raised kids for a few weeks. We were hoping to start cuddling from a day or so old to get them used to us. Is that a mistake?
