About a year and a half ago we bought a bunch of nanny's from quite a ways away. They too started getting sick like this. We lost a few before we learned a valuable lesson. Now when we buy anything , we keep them away from our herd and worm and delouse them. By hauling them, it sets something off to make them sick. I also give them a good dose of Probios which maybe helps and maybe it doesn't. We also have a decox put in our feed so they get that boost right away. Did you ask if they had been getting grain and what kind and how much? If they had been wormed lately. Worms can cause alot of bad things to happen. This just reminded me of our situation when we weaned goats over a year ago. The got the poops and we thought it was stress and change of feed. Not! It was worms. We wormed them and treated them for coxxi and got rid of our problem. We learned an expensive lesson and we have had goats for 25 years.
