    Hello,
    I've been given a young female alpaca and I know nothing of them. I have goats, chickens, horses and dogs. What all do I need for an alpaca? She will be in with my Nubian's, whom I hoping she will protect?

    So I should just treat them like my goats? I'm not getting any advice?

    They probably need different feeds/minerals, etc than goats. Here's a website that might help you:
