    How do I train my 3 month old doeling NOT to butt me. I think because my other does are quick to butt each other (not me) and she plays with my rooster, she thinks that she can just butt anyone anytime she wants. What is the proper method for teaching her that butting me isn't ok?

    Help would be appreciated.....her tiny horns are quite sharp right now! :haha:

    or a squirt gun works good too, and it fits in your pocket.
