Kids NEVER get top front teeth, and are born with top rear teeth.

Weaning age varies from 8 weeks to 12 weeks or longer. 8 weeks is fine if you give them Calf Manna to nibbke on (25% protien which is higher than Milk replacer. I had some orphan kids that would not drink milk from a bottle or pan that weaned thereselves at about 6 weeks. They ate a lot of calf manna though and had all the alfalfa they could eat. When you first give calf manna to them start out with about 1/4 cup / day / kid and slowly build up to have it available at all times. They won't overeat alfalfa so put as much (fine stemed) as they want. Alfalfa makes there rumen develop and gives them a larger food capacity.
