Eat them. The meat is wonderful and good for you.
I have a number of meat customers for our buck kids and a standing order from a producer for all that I don't sell. Granted she only gives me $5 per kid but she picks them up before they're a week old and I don't have to deal with them at all.
I know of people who put down all buck kids not spoken for before birth.
Other people run them all through a local sales barn after weaning.

We have an ethnic market that purchases most of our bucks. Those that are left over go to our local auction.

This has been the year for bucks. Out of 8 live kids, we've had 6 bucks. That might be a good thing, as we're keeping the girls... don't want to grow too fast.

It's been the same thing with the sheep. Out of 13 live births to date, we have 9 rams.

Four Country Gals, the ONLY Certified Organic Produce farm in SW Utah. Also custom-raised lamb and rabbit available.

We wether them and raise up to about 1 year old and eat them. The meat is delicious and they do help with clearing up any land that is overgrown.
