Pygmy Goats are curious, gentle, low maintenance and hardy animals that adore the company of others – they must be kept in at least pairs!! If alone, they quickly become bored and lonely.
Goats are ruminants. This means they have four stomach compartments and when resting after they have eaten, will regurgitate their food, called ‘chewing the cud’ and then re-swallow. They will require a constant supply of hay and water with an added feed once to twice a day. We have Marriages Pygmy Goat Mix in stock which has all the added supplements and minerals that may not be in your generic coarse mix.
Pygmy Goats will need regular worming (depending on your choice of product) and their feet trimmed as and when required.
Straw or similar for bedding and a ledge to sleep on. You will need suitable housing for your goats as they absolutely hate the rain. – Please see our recommended housing available in the housing tab.
We do not De-bud our kids as this is quite a risky veterinary procedure and needs to be carried out between 2-7 days old, it can lead to ongoing health problems and in worse case scenarios meningitis and even the loss of the kid.
Before taking your Goats home, you must obtain a County Parish Holding Number (CPH) from the Rural Payment Agency 0845 6037777 (Customer registration option) Or you can follow this link https://www.gov.uk/guidance/register-land-you-use-to-keep-livestock
