Pygmy goat and Bearded Silkie Customers Wanted



National Geographic is coming out to film Amber Waves Pygmy goats and silkies.  They are looking for local customers of our goats and chickens to possibly  be included in the film segment.

Alternatively, we’d be happy to film anyone you know that treats their Silkies like a dog – ie dresses them up/ puts them in diapers/ leads them on a leash / watches TV with them on their lap. Am I right in understanding that you and Jim don’t really do that right? We would still of course love to feature your Silkies in the episode, we just need to supplement the story with visuals like the above.

The same goes for any of our pygmy goat customers who treat their goats like a dog.

Please email me information about your Silkie Chicken and or Your Pygmy Goat along with your contact information so I can pass the information on to the film producer.

Filming will be sometime after Thanksgiving.

Update on Amber Waves China Town

From Erin Murphy 

Hi Debbie,
He's doing great! He's gotten the hang of the bottle and is nursing/ gaining well. His new name is 'Dexter'. I tried to come up with something  'Chinatown' related; but he doesn't look like a Jake and didn't think I should name a kid Polanski.
I'll send more photos when it's warmer outside.
Just love the little guy!

Note: This is the little one pound baby kid we offered for free to a good home.

Welcome Our newest addition to Amber Waves

Meet Augie

Registered Great Pyrenees puppy.. Male.. More pictures coming

Hi Debbie:
  Just wanted to send you pictures of Lucy and Ethel on their Little Tykes play gym.  They love it!  They're so much fun.

Feeding Tips: Pygmy Goat Vs Dairy Goats

Pygmy Goats vs. Dairy Goats
Pygmy Goats vs. Dairy GoatsModern goats originated from the wild goats that roamed the mountains of Asia and Eastern Europe. Along with sheep, they were some of the first animals to be domesticated between 6000 and 7000 B.C. for their milk, meat, hair and hides. Today, people continue to raise goats for these reasons and for pets. Over the centuries many breeds have developed that have specific qualities that make them better suited for each of these different tasks.

Some of the most common types of dairy goats in the United States are Nubian, La Mancha, Nigerian Dwarf, Alpine, Oberhasli, Saanen and Toggenburg. The Alpine, Saanen and Toggenburg breeds originated in the French and Swiss Alps and are often referred to as the "Swiss" type breeds. They are very similar in conformation, all having upright ears, straight or slightly dished faces and an alert, graceful, deer–like appearance.
  • Nubian: Originated in Great Britain and is the most common breed in the U.S. They are medium–large and live well in very warm climates. Nubians are meatier and produce less milk than some other dairy breeds.
  • LaMancha: Developed in Oregon and are believed to be of Spanish origin. Known for their small ears, LaManchas are medium sized, very hardy, and excellent for colder climates.
  • Nigerian Dwarf: Miniature dairy goats known for their high quality milk, which generally has high butter–fat content.
  • Alpine: Medium–large size and are good milkers with long lactations. They are believed to have Swiss and French influence and can easily produce 3 liters of milk per day.
  • Oberhasli: Medium–sized Swiss Dairy goats. They are generally sweet natured but very alert.
  • Saanen: Largest of dairy goat breeds. Known for their superior milk production, Saanens are often compared to Holstein dairy cattle in terms of relative milk production.
  • Toggenburg: Thought to be the oldest and purest Swiss goats. They are medium size, have moderate production and are great for pets due to their gentle nature.
Pygmies are miniature goats that originated in West Africa and were once called Cameroon Dwarf goats. Although they produce small amounts of high quality milk and are considered meat goats, pygmies are becoming increasingly popular as pets in urban and suburban areas. Typically they are 15 to 20 inches tall and weigh between 35 and 60 pounds. Because pygmy goats have very small ureters (the tube that empties the bladder), they are more prone to urinary calculi and must be carefully managed, including eaing a feed containing a urinary acidifier like ammonium chloride.

Popular meat breeds include Boer, Kiko, Kinder, Myotonic, Spanish, Tennessee Meat Goat™, and TexMaster™.
  • Boers: Classic meat goats from South Africa. Their name comes from the Dutch word for farmer. They have a fast growth rate and excellent carcass qualities. They can grow quite large, with bucks weighing several hundred pounds, yet they are quite docile and are popular show animals.
  • Kikos: From New Zealand and are named after the native Maori word for flesh or meat. They were developed for survivability and fast growth.
  • Kinders: Have only been around for about 20 years, but are small dual purpose goats, great for both milking and meat production.
  • Myotonics: Also known as Wooden Leg or Tennessee Fainting goats. When they get excited or frightened, their limbs often lock up causing them to fall over or faint for a few seconds.
  • Spanish: Also known as brush goats, because of their ability to clear brush and other undesirable plants. Their input requirements are often lower than other goats, making them popular for meat production. However, in addition to meat production, they are good kidders and milk producers.
  • Tennessee Meat Goat™: Developed by Onion Creek Ranch in Texas by breeding full blood myotonic goats. The contraction of the muscles causes their meat to be very tender.
  • TexMaster™: Developed by Onion Creek Ranch by breeding Tennessee Meat Goats with Boers for faster growth.
