2021 Kidding Season Details & Information

 

About the 2021 Breeding Schedule - While many breeders start kidding in late February and forward we prefer later in  Spring. This year we bred our does for Kidding to begin in late April, early May, and into early June to try and avoid any brutal cold weather the does and kids may have to endure during kidding.  Kids should be weaned within 8 to 10 weeks (wethers at 12 weeks) and be ready for their new farms at that time.  We do not sell bottle babies - weaned kids only.  

We receive too many requests for kids for me to keep track of and to have notify people after the does have kidded so we decided to implement a new system. There are a couple of ways to acquire notifications of available kids you can read about below.

 

1. If you'd like to be notified by email of the kidding before the kids are posted online, there is a $25.00 non-refundable notification fee required.  You will receive an email with photographs of the kids 48 hours before they are posted on our website.  Email me and put DEPOSIT in the subject line and I will send you payment details.  

2. Once born, if you'd like to reserve a kid, a non-refundable deposit of half the cost of the kid is required to be considered sold.  First come, first served!

3.  For 2021 -  For available kids, check the website - kids will be posted on the website and marked accordingly after they are born. Next round of Kidding's will be in Mid May and early June.    

Due to an unfortunate serious accident I had on the farm in early 2020 and the Covid 19 Virus complicating matters for my surgery until fall, we ended up keeping all of the 2020 kids except one doeling which had already been picked up. A few of those does and bucklings may become available this fall.

 

We will be greatly reducing our buck population in the early Spring or Summer depending on Linear Appraisal and may be offering a couple of the does for sale (possibly in milk).
