MGM Nigerian Dwarf Goats

The Nigerian Goat Accommodations

Ideally, Goats should have a dry, shaded shelter during wet, cold or hot weather. A large dog house will work great for bucks and dry does. A larger sheltered area is recommended during kidding time, giving the does enough room to move around while kidding without laying on newborn kids. Goats should not be housed in airtight buildings; good ventilation is required for optimum health.

You can add items for the goats to play on, such as tree stumps, rocks or large cable spools are great for "king of the mountain" games and jumping. This can provide hours of entertainment while watching the kids and adults take advantage of these "toys". Be sure to keep any of these items away from the fence to avoid potential escape. Good fencing is important due to their small size.
