2. The kennel idea sounds like some sort of horrific reverse-farrowing crate; I can't imagine the goats taking kindly to it.
3. I think it's debatable whether abandoned kids are better bottle-fed and reared by humans or left to die as they would in nature; having only taken the former route in my personal experience, I can say with conviction it is something I will avoid at all cost in the future. It is beneficial neither to the abandoned kid nor the human surrogate, and given the choice I would -never- do it purposefully, regardless of how much spare time I might have.

I prefer the damn to raise them herself but if seperation is needfull this is the best way I've found it also keeps the big girls out of the baby's solid feed later on
If I ain't gonna see the kid fed I'd rather pop it on the back of the head and cook it up like a rabbit than let it die slow and my experience with bottle raising hasn't been half bad
