Kids in Five Islands! (the four-legged kind)

Three adorable kids born this weekend in Five Islands; twin bucks and a singleton doe.

The males are called Bucky and Lazy (no sense thinking up endearing names for critters that are destined for the freezer); last I heard the third doesn’t have a name yet; it’s worth putting more effort into naming the females, since they tend to stick around longer.

We get our goats started off right, with Mexican beer:

They get bottle-fed four times a day for 8 weeks, until they’re ready to start eating hay. This makes them more people-friendly, and decouples the milk production of the mothers from the nutritional requirements of the kids.
