    me too. I have several more to go, and I hope this turns around. I need girls, not boys. I will sell these two soon, as I can't use them. but the yare fine looking.

    I talked with my two does today that are due in April and May and put my orders in for all girls too :haha: Now, just wait and see if they comply with my request. I don't need bucks either, but I guess like children - as long as they are healthy !

    your right Trish, as long as they are healthy. But I have told my girls, I want girls, no boys, thank you, and what did I get? boys. Well, I guess I will just have to see what the rest of them have. I hope that they are girls.

    You know how contrary goats are. As soon as you actually want them to do something they do the exact opposite.

    Here's hoping you get some does, and congratulations on the healthy bucklings!

    We started with a buck and a doe on the first kidding and have two more in about two weeks. I prefer the doe kids, but we have a great market for wethers if we are willing go get them up to fifty pounds. I really am hoping to raise orphan lambs on my extra goat milk. My daughter's FFA advisor told her that she was the only one that could get orphan lambs up to show weight.

    We told our girls to only have bucks. They grow bigger and sell better for meat. We don't intend to milk any more than these 2 does. They are Alpines so I am sure they will listen to my every word.

    hank-narita, well good luck, it seems like when I tell them girls I get boys, if I say boys I get girls. so you just never know.
