Goats For Sale

Percy x Cookie Spring Nigerian Dwarf Kids

Little Debbie

RESERVED

Little Debbie was born the smallest and has to share her mommas milk with 3 other larger sisters, so we decided to supplement with milk that we have been taking from one of our LaManchas (who’s twins are not quite able to keep up with her ferocious milk supply yet!).

So although Little Debbie is not QUITE a true bottle baby, we have been able to spend some extra special time 3-4 times a day feeding her some milk to help her get big and strong.

Snowball

AVAILABLE $300

Snowball is about the average size baby goat of the litter.  Not too big, but not too small either!

She's a lighter shade of black with some white on her head and under belly, with a whiteish hue to her top coat as well.

Snowball was the first to officially jump on our backs while we were in the pen squatting down to feed Little Debbie, so she’s a scrappy one and always gets right back up after falling down!

Cupcake

AVAILABLE $300

Cupcake is the next largest of Cookie's quads and she is all about jumping on high places - particularly if it's your back!

She is jet black (compared to her sisters) with some white on her forehead, minimal white on her body and frosted ears.

Willard x Astra Spring Nigerian Dwarf Kids

Memphis (buck)

AVAILABLE $300

Memphis is almost a carbon copy of his momma!  He's black and white with blue eyes, but he's got his daddy's wattles.

He is a sweet and shy little guy, but still likes to play and occasionally asks for cuddles when he's feeling social.

He will remain intact because he will have great babies for you!

 

Willard x Daisy Spring Mini Mancha Kids

Paris

RESERVED

Paris has a black nose, and black blaze over her white face.  The rest of her body is black and white, and she has wattles.

She has been a bit shy but has definitely warmed up to us over the past couple of weeks and now enjoys scratchies and cuddles every now and again when she sees how much her bro enjoys them 🙂

Mini Mancha does are great for milkers if you like the butterfat of Nigerian Dwarf milk but want to boost up the quantity a bit!

Phoenix (wether)

AVAILABLE $250

Phoenix is black and white with wattles (very similar to Paris) but the differences are definitely in his face: pink nose and mostly white face.

He enjoys playing with his pen mates but he LOVES people!

Socializing with us is hands down Phoenix's favorite time of day.

Who can say no to cuddles with a guy this handsome?!?

Percy x Sweet Pea Spring Nigerian Dwarf Kids

Raleigh (wether)

RESERVED

Raleigh and Juno both look similark, but Raleigh looks more true to his momma Sweet Pea because of he has more white.

He loves snuggles, naps, and hanging out with his friends.

DON'T CLICK HERE (unless you wanna see a super cute video of Raleigh waking up).

Quincy (wether)

AVAILABLE $250

"One of these things is not like the other!"

Quincy has more of the dark chocolate with light swiss look, rather than mostly cream with some white.

He started out very shy and evasive with the camera, but these last few days he's definitely come around!

Percy x Penelope Spring Nigerian Dwarf Kids

Chocolate Nigerian Dwarf Buck named Percy

Cairo (buckling)

AVAILABLE $300

Cairo is a dark chocolate swiss with moon spots and blue eyes.  AKA a visual masterpiece!

His bright blue eyes complement his dark features, but he also has spots of many colors, all around and we think he would be a great herd sire if you'd like to throw blue eyes and coats of many colors.

Yearlings & Adult Goats Available

Although we wish we could keep all kids, unfortunately our farm has a certain capacity of goats we are able to keep.

Therefore, every time we decide to retain a new baby goat we may also have to list a different goat for sale if space does not allow us to keep both.

These are the current yearlings and/or adult goats that we currently have listed for sale in addition to the kids above.

Minis N Friends Ad Astra $350

DOB 5/3/22 (twin)

Astra is a 2 year old doe who was a first time freshener this Spring 2024 with twins (1 buck, 1 doe).

Both kids are extremely high quality (we decided to retain her doe Charlotte), unfortunately since we decided to keep 3 kids we have to make some cuts.

Astra will remain on the farm until her kids are weaned, and should be available in June/July 2024 while in milk.

If you are interested in Astra, please reach out via the Contact form below!

JTW NOAHS-ARK OF DAISY $400

DOB 3/3/21

Daisy is a 3 year old doe registered with the ADGA who was a first time freshener last Spring 2023 with twins (2 does) and kidded this Spring 2024 with twins again (1 buck, 1 doe).

All of Daisy’s kids are high quality kids, but we decided to retain 2 full LaMancha kids (Ginger and Cinammon) from Merci so we have to find a new home for Daisy.

Daisy is a fantastic milker (we suspect producing 1 gallon a day currently), and she will be available later this fall while in milk.

Fun fact: LaMancha’s will milk up to 2 years without being re-bred (re-freshening)!

If you are interested in Daisy, please reach out via the Contact form below!

Cou Claire Nigerian Dwarf doe

DUCKDAWG CREEK J IZZY $325

DOB 3/31/22

Izzy is a 2 year old Cou Claire doe who is registered with the ADGA.  We love her beautiful color patterns and gentle and sweet personality.

She started out super shy but it didn’t take very long for her to warm up to us.  Now she is a total sweetheart!

Izzy has been exposed to our new buck Brad (golden with blue eyes) since 3/12/24 and we suspect she will have her first kids this fall.

If you are interested in Izzy, please reach out via the Contact form below!

OPAL $300

DOB 5/20/23 (triplet)

Our little Opal is an unregistered yearling Nigerian Dwarf and Miniature Fainting doe cross with wattles.  She is a total cuddle bug and absolute heartbreaker.

Opal is a spitting image of her momma, who was our “big boss” Fainter and delivered triplets, quads, triplets during her time at Penner Mini Farms.

Opal has been exposed to our new buck Brad (golden with blue eyes) since 3/12/24 and we suspect she will have her first set of kids this fall.

If you are interested in Opal, please reach out via the Contact form below!

Rowdy Acres RK Persian Eclipse $400

DOB 4/19/21 

Percy has been one of our herdsires for the last 2 years.  Since we get new bucks every 2 years (in order to retain kids), it’s time for us to find a new home for Percy.

This year we have decided to retain Frosty and Juno from Percy.

In 2023, Percy bred Cookie, Penelope, and Sweet Pea and gave triplets for each.  In 2024, for the same 3 does he gave Quads, Triplets and a set of twins for 9 kids each season, totaling 18 kids in 2 years.

If you are interested in Percy, please reach out via the Contact form below!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you disbud your goats?

The short answer is, no.

We choose not to disbud or dehorn our kids for several reasons, mostly because we believe they are better off having their horns to protect from predators, as well as the fact that their horns help regulate their temperatures (keeping them warm when it's cold, and keeping them cool when it's hot).

We've also found that 4 out of 5 disbudded goats have issues with scurs for the rest of their lives.

Scurs are small horn re-growths that develop after a kid goat has been disbudded. Frequently, this is a result of the dehorning iron not being hot enough or not left on long enough at the time of dehorning. It may also be due to not waiting long enough between kids (to allow the iron to reheat). Sometimes scurs can occur even if a good job of disbudding is done.

So to us, it would be a disservice to the goats to disbud them.

However, you will see that many of our goats that we've received from other breeders were already disbudded or dehorned before we got them.  So we do understand that many other breeders and goat owners love the convenience of goats without horns.

With that being said, we do not disbud any goat kids that are born at our farm.

If you require your goat kids to be disbudded, then unfortunately our goats will not be a good fit for you.

Do you bottle feed your baby goats?

In an ideal world, we would never have to bottle feed our babies.

We do everything we can to ensure that our does are healthy enough to nurse all their babies, but unfortunately there are times that it simply doesn't work that way.

In one instance, a doe had quads and was only able to support 3 kids and rejected one so that was a bottle baby.

In another instance, one doe was extremely stressed during her first kidding and ended up rejecting her kid so that became a bottle baby as well.

Again, in a perfect world, we would not have any bottle babies!  But in the real world, we do what we can with what we have, and always end up loving those kids because of the extra special time we get to spend with them.

Will goats get along with my dogs?

As far as dogs, that's a tough question because it really is based on the dog.

As a farm, we personally choose not to have any dogs because we've found that the goats get very stressed with even a very calm small dog since they're not raised around them.

But we have a neighbor with goats who has a very active dog, so we know it's possible.

Just really depends on your dog(s) and making sure they are trained properly to not harass or chase your goats, in order to prevent injury to your goats and/or to your dog from the goat protecting itself.

Are your male baby goats fixed?

After any bucks have been reserved for new farms, and also deciding which other bucks will stay intact for each season, we do band/castrate most other males into wethers at around the 3-4 week mark.

By the time the little ones leave the farm, we can ensure there were no complications with banding and the new owner (possibly you!) does not have to deal with said complications and you can just enjoy your happy, healthy, bouncing baby goat(s)!

Can I only buy one goat?
Since goats are herd animals they need another goat as company to thrive and be healthy.  Because of that, we do not sell a single goat to a home without another goat and typically sell our goats in pairs (unless they are to homes that already contain goats).
How do you keep goats from escaping their pens?

Before we got our first goats (while we were still in "research mode"), we realized that one of the main issues goat owners had was keeping the goats secured in their pens.  So we decided that it would be worth it to set up our pens as securely as possible right from the start, and since then, we haven't had any escapees!**

Some practices we've established:

  1. Panels no larger than 4x4 squares
  2. We also strongly suggest to reinforce any kidding pens with 2x4 wire panels to prevent those tiny tots from walking through a 4x4 into a different momma's pen and being rejected from its true dam
  3. If needed (if your goats rush you when entering their pen with food, treats, etc), it is also strongly suggested to add a separate panel that you attach to a corner of your pen enclosing the entrance gate, so that you can successfully enter the pen (into a smaller triangle) and able to shut the gate to outside of the pen, before opening the additional panel and then the goats can bum rush you there (since you're securely in the pen with no open gate).

One very helpful resource for us was this post on fencing for mini goats.

Do goats stick their heads through fences?

In one word: YES.

Goats will stick their heads through anything.

However, it's one thing when a baby goat sticks its head through a fence that it can easily pull it back out of, and it's something else completely when that rascal is unable to pull it out entirely.

It's especially tricky with goat kids while they're growing (along with their horns), in addition to them being super ornery and curious.

One way that we've been able to combat this particular tendency is by reinforcing our 4x4 fencing with 2x4 wires - at least for any pens that goat kids have access to, in addition to building custom hay feeders with 2x4 panels that baby goats can't stick their heads through.

Otherwise, you'll be unpleasantly surprised when you've got to choose to cut your fencing apart in order to get a cute littlehead loose.

What do you feed your goats?

We grow our own hay at Penner Mini Farms.  It's a mixture of grass hay and legumes and our goats actually love it!  Our home grown hay is actually all that we feed all of our males (bucks and wethers) for their entire life, at least after they've been weaned

Mama's + Kids

While lactating and throughout nursing/milking, our does and kids are supplemented with whole oats, alfalfa hay, alfalfa pellets, and occasionally grain in order to increase their protein/calcium intake during this time.

What type of feeders are best for mini goats?

Great question!

This is something we struggled with in the beginning since we started with minis.

Unfortunately, most of the hay feeder options we found were much too big for grown miniature goats, and virtually impossible for baby goats!

We ended up getting some plans to build a hay feeder and customized them to better suit our nigerian dwarf goats and kids.

On occasion, we do make and sell hay feeders for miniature goats so if you're interested, be sure to reach out at the bottom of this page or click here for more info!

Do you name any of your goats?

YES!

We love our goats, and every time we get a new baby goat or even if we pick up a goat from a fellow farmer - we ALWAYS give them a name because they are now part of Penner Mini Farms!

Jeffrey and I both know every single goat by name, and we're pretty sure after a little while they learn their names as well 🥰

How do I reserve some baby goats?

Reach out via the contact form below!

Goats cannot be reserved until all the kids are on the ground, and we've had reasonable time to determine if any will be retained.

A $100 deposit per goat is required to reserve (cash, check or Venmo) and the remaining balance is due at pickup (cash only).

Still have questions?

Please reach out on the form below and we'll get back to you as soon as we can!
