I would like to raise nubians again.  This pygmy is fighting taking the bottle so we are using a dropper but might have to tube feed if it don't take the bottle soon. 

Give him a little time, he will take the bottle.  A few years back there was a ton of the meat and mil goats in this are but none of them were Pygmy,  All big goats.  Eat twice as much, and twice as hard to keep in.
