A doe will typically reach puberty by six months. This can vary slightly for some as they may reach fertility sooner. Although some goats may breed seasonally, some will be able to breed year round. This can be problematic if goats aren’t separated and pregnancies aren’t spaced. Back to back pregnancies can take a toll on the health of the doe.

Hello... I'm Mary. A loving wife to a rancher, stay at home mama to three children, 3 and under. Originally from So Cal, I did not imagine I'd live the rural life, but here I am. God sure works in mysterious ways. Ha. Our homestead journey started with a few baby chicks. We have grown our flock to include, guineas and ducks. As I've mentioned, my husband ranches, so we have cattle too. We raise, breed and graze a variety of goats. We are a traditional catholic family trying to live a simple life.
