We had a doe kid the 15th with a single, the doe wasn't letting out the milk so we got another's colostrum. The doeling was fine for the first 8-10 hrs after birth. After that she seemed to go down hill. Her stool has been running out of her and is yellow and very stinky. The vet gave me probios to give to her...I did. No luck. Then she quit nursing(finally got on mom), she doesn't want to do anything...stand...nurse...just lay there. We gave her some coffee&sugar to perk her up to get some elctrolytes(pediasure) in her. She refuses to nurse, the only way we can get liquids in her is to put them in an eye dropper and then into her mouth.
I would give a dose of scour halt (something to firm her up as she will dehydrate fast), 5cc of CD Anti toxin, 1/4 tsp cinnamon in some electrolytes and about 1/2 cc of Thiamine or 3cc of B Complex. Continue all but the scour halt until she is up and nursing good.
Yellow poops are normal for a baby up to a week or so old. Keep giving the probios, it won't hurt, but to my knowledge this is nothing to worry about. Of course, again, this depends on how old she is, but if she's under a week old, it's just a goat baby being a goat baby!

Thanks guys. Last night she actually started firming up. We have been giving Probios 1x daily, then giving Nutri-Drench every 10 hours, we were also giving electrolytes by dropper every 2 hrs, I gave her 1/4cc of Penicillian just incase it is something more, and I will give another 1/4cc for the next few days. I noticed this morning her poop is a little darker and more so like thick pudding now.
As for right now, she is up trying to play, and trying to nurse.

I'll give you a hint......... wish for bucks all you'll get is does lolllllll . Keep an eye on the little one but the color of the poo should start changing soon as she starts nibbling at hay and greens with mom.
