Yesterday I brought home a three year old Pygmy buck. He had been kept as a pet and is in poor condition. He has been over fed on grain and he had no hay or minerals. I deloused him and I am going to worm him this afternoon. I have Nubian dairy goats but have never owned a buck before. So here are my questions, 1. Does he need ammonium chloride in his mineral, if so how much? 2. What is the proper amount of grain for him? 3. should I wean him off grain and only give it to him when he is breeding? Anyway this little guy has great potential and it is sad to see him looking like a scrub goat. What was funny is that when I went to pick him up he was chained to the chicken house where he slept, in a fenced area. When I asked the lady about it she didnât give me much of an answer and the subject changed. Well, after we got him home and settled into his new, grassy pen surrounded by 5â high chain link fence I expected him to be happy. You know what the little bugger did? He climbed the fence and took off! Know I know why he was chained!
