Birthing Barn For Goats


Babies
Born Warm
Your doe should not be left out in the cold when they are expecting. The babies should be born and spend their first days in an area protect from the cold and wind. A ground cover like straw or shavings should be used to keep the area clean and warm. Using a heat lamp is recommended but proper hanging is a must to avoid it dropping to the floor and causing a fire.



Thanks to Bill DeVaul for the birthing barn photos. Please visit his website to see some great photos of his goats and his must-see online store for signs
