Been some time since I worked with goats, so I checked with one of our specialists, here is his answer--

If the doe kid is 6 weeks, the bucks are just playing around. If the doe kid is 6 months it may be too late to prevent a pregnancy. Doe kids will usually reach puberty between 4 and 12 months of age.

If you will send me a snail mail address, I'll send some info on raising goats.

Good luck!!!
