HELP! My goat won't drink the bottle!
I just got 2 nubian baby goats. One is about 2 weeks old and drinks the bottle perfectly after the first 3 feedings. The other goat is 4-5 weeks old and still isn't understanding that the bottle is food and not a torture chamber afterI stick the bottle in her mouth and she just bites it or holds on to it, a little gets in her, but not enough. I heard Kyro syrup on the nipple helps, I'm gonna try that tomarrow morning. I talk softy and nuzle her and stroke her and tickle her tail when I try to feed her, and she still won't eat! I have even sang to her! I guess that i might need to be more patient, I mean, I've only had her for 3 days, but she has not got it. I am still going to stick with it, but do you guys have andy tricks? She seems active and eats her grain and hay and grass that is growing in her fenced area, but she won't take the bottle! I know i have said that like 6 times, but, i am a bit concered for my Lily!
