Ella Nigerian Dwarf Goat

Small but Mighty

Ella, the tiniest Nigerian Dwarf at Shepperly Farm, and the only girl ever born here, is 7's daughter. She is also a new mom, having given birth to the newest member of the Shepperly Family, Sergeant. Ella loves nothing more than to be pet and give as many kisses as possible, and loves spending time with her best friend and mom, 7.

Shepperly Farm Fun Facts

Dwarf does can have several kids at a time. Three or four are common, but even giving birth to 5 kids at once is not unusual. On average each kid weighs 2 pounds at birth. The average gestation period is between 4.5-5 months. Many breeders breed their Nigerian Dwarf does 3 times in 2 years, giving them a 6 month break from breeding.

An exciting trait in Nigerian Dwarf Goats? They come in a large variety of colors and regardless of the parents fur color, you never know what color the babies will be when they're born. Many goats are even born one color and change colors as they age. They can be black, chocolate, or gold- and any combination of those colors is entirely possible. Brown eyes are the most common in Nigerian Dwarf Goats, but blue eyes are becoming increasingly popular as well.
