Goat drench and rooster move

The goats are wormy again.

 

So like last time we drenched them twice 48 hrs apart and we have prepared the old paddock to move them back into 48 hrs after drenching the second time. Tag and Monty got the best part of 25 ml each, Pilly got 13ml which may have been a little low for her weight.

We will re-test them 10 days after the second drench to see if it has worked.

In other goat news, last week Tag has decided to wean Monty so we are back at milking every day. She is giving about 1.5L each time.

Last night I also moved our spare 5 Roos to the old chook pen with a view to let them free range once they’ve gotten used to their new home. I have left Rosie in charge of the big pen and I have left AAron in with him as they seem to sort of get along… We’ll see. Now that there’s fewer rooster I have also moved Alisha and Cybrhia back in the big pen after they spent over a month in the old peacock pen. I had moved them as they both had a bare back due to breeding season and molting and Cyinthia even had a deep cut from the rooster. They are all better now with most feathers re-grown.
