    I have two grade nubian doelings born 7/2/07. One weighs 58 pounds and one weighs 52 pounds. They are twins. We have a buck that we are able to lease to breed them if we want. Should I breed them like in February or should I wait till next fall? Are they small or large for their age? Thanks.

    I would wait until they weigh over 80#'s, 90 would be even better. If they're not that weight by the end of Dec. I'd pass on breeding them this year.

    Where are you located? Here I would wait, so that I could have normal kids born in the spring, eaiser to sell kids out of, and the kids themselves grow better and can be bred their first year. I hate out of season kids! Vicki
