Have you been thinking of getting a pygmy nigerian goat for a pet?
Here are some basic care instructions to get you started:
Nigerian Dwarf goats are relatively easy to care for, they are compact, docile, productive and of course the cutest little animals…
Goats should always have access to fresh, clean water. Remember that your Nigerian Dwarf goats will need more water than usual in hot weather or when lactating.
They will browse on shrubs, weeds, herbs, and leaves. Allowing them freedom of pasture also gives them the exercise they need to stay healthy and prevent health problems. Alfalfa hay can and should be offered for free feeding.
Depending on the plants in your pasture, local soil composition, and nutritional composition of your hay, it is likely that your goats will need mineral supplements. If you are providing high-quality food, they may only require small amounts of trace minerals.
Nigerian Dwarfs make wonderful pets due to their easy care, size, personality, sweet temperament and they will get along with your other family pets.
