While purchasing a female pigmy goat, which is also called doe, make sure it is not less than seven years of age. If it is, then you are wasting your time as it will breed after reaching to seven.
Buy a male pigmy goat, also called buck, and make sure it is between two to three months of age. Normally, the age of bucks is half as compared to the age of does which is perfect for mating.
However, it is not necessary that you buy a buck that is two to three months old. You can buy 6 or 7 months old buck if it is healthy. But make sure it is suitable for the doe.
You should keep observing when your doe becomes fertile, which is necessary for breeding. You can judge it by observing the mucus discharge from doe’s back. When does become fertile, they usually try to mount on other goats and also show exciting behaviour when bucks are around.
When you see that doe is fertile, then put her with the buck in a small quarter or let them graze in a small pasture. It is quite essential for getting good results as they will start mating in a few hours.
