Re: Nigerian Dwarf Goat beginner FAIL! :(

I agree with all of the above. Also it is common to have a major drop in time of stress, like a move. Also I find my does drop down drastically in production if they don't like what I'm feeding them - they are picky! We recently dealt with one of our does not liking the grain we were giving her and when we changed it she started gaining weight nicely and is producing REALLY well. I'd work on getting her body condition up since it sounds like she is thin and see if it starts to pick up more. If she throws quads likely she is a good producer, but you honestly just never know until you start milking even if they are from good lines. Good luck with your goats!
