Pygmy goats are fun. Pam has two, named Jack and Jill. They've been here about 4 years now. We can give you all kinds of info on them if you wish. Think of them as dogs with horns...
They are easy to care for, too!
Ok, here's a few questions.
How big do they get?
Do you need more than one?
Where can I get some?
What do you feed them?
Can you leave them unsupervised for a few days or so?
Do they stink?
They don't get too big. Pam's are maybe two feet at the shoulder.
Yes, you should have more than one as they are very social animals.
Craigslist is a good place to check. Pam actually got hers from a petting zoo a few miles down the road. (The owner also has an animal rescue.)
We feed a mixture of goat pellets, cracked corn, and rolled oats. We also keep a supply of hay onhand for them. These are spoiled rotten, so they won't touch the grass. We have to actually mow the paddock.
You could leave them unsupervised for a few days, as long as they have enough hay and clean water.
Males will definitely stink unless you neuter them at a young age.
I'll try to post some pictures of our simple set-up tomorrow.
