Kenley’s Farm Fresh Eggs
Kenley takes great care of her flock and loves to educate others on the different breeds and how she cares for them. Supplements like “probiotics” and “nutri-drench” are a regular part of her conversations. She gets home from school and collects the eggs, lets the chickens free-range all day and takes out the table scraps as treats. Once she does all her fun stamping, she delivers. She makes sure her customers know how long these eggs are good out on the counter and how to clean them before consuming them. Before you think it’s cute and agree to be a customer, just be warned - she’s got the hustlin’ part of the business down, too. You can learn more about how Kenley takes care of her eggs by reading about it on our blog.

Caring for your Goats
Help yourself to downloading this PDF and using it as a resource. Please keep in mind, I am not a vet. All of my information is compiled from online research of reputable sites, but you should always check the medication instructions before administering. Updated: November 2018.
We own more medications and supplements for our animals than we do for the humans in our family. And just when we feel stocked up, a whole new problem comes up. It’s back to google, asking Nigerian Dwarf groups, possibly a visit to a vet and a trip to TSC for more remedies. In some cases, I have time to calmly research an issue to address it. But in other circumstances, immediate action is required and calculating 3 cc to 50 lbs body weight down for a 2-lb kid not only stresses me out but also could present a costly error while I’m feeling rushed.
Typically, I look to 2-3 different websites for their goat medication information and I combined the info into this document. Everything is broken down into categories; wounds, kidding, antibiotics, vaccinations, disease/illness, parasites, supplements/nutrition. Does this medication need to be refrigerated? Is it carried at TSC? Do I need to get it from the vet? Do I currently have it in the WRC cabinet? Do I inject SQ or IM? How often do I dose? Is there a milk withdrawal?
I know this would have come in handy on so many different occasions so I'm glad to have it as we head into breeding plans here at Wildroot Cove.
