L, I'm seriously thinkin minimal human intervention is a learned thing, not genetic?????????????????????? This is a very hardy meat breed is it not?
This a primarily meat breed.
They were developed in New Zealand to be "feral"
There's some pretty interesting stuff on You Tube which is where we learned about them.
My daughter has wanted goats for a few years.
We decided, this past year, that circumstances fit.
We were almost ready to get Boers when we stumbled on this breed and felt it was ideal for us.
We found these two 100% Kiko kids who are half sisters and got them.
Since last 4th of July weekend when we got them we haven't gone through1 50# bag of feed yet.
But, they really clear brush!
I did have to buy some hay because they have stripped their existing pasture bare.
In the spring, we're greatly expanding their fence.
I was never around goats.
We had pigs, cows and chickens and I had a horse growing up.
These two are a lot of fun.
