Hi Ashley, Don't have Nigerians so can't answer your questions.But do know of a site you can try. It's mineraturedairygoats . It's a forum where you can ask your questions and these people do have nigerians so will be able t help. Good luck.

1- They will even eat you if you stand still long enough. 2- Goats will not eat garbage ( they will dump it and check it all out plastic is bad ) 3-A TALL fence with electric around it. 4-We clean one time a week in winter 5- In winter we trim at 6 weeks 6-We give all the hay they want and a scoop of grain. ( scoop 1/2 pound or 1/2 tomato juice can ) 7-A good building with thick bedding will do fine. We are using old hog houses.
