At what age are pygmy billy goats mature?

Just wondering how long we can keep our little billy in with our other goats and goat kids? What age can they breed?

At birth..........Just kidding, kinda I've known them to breed as early as 6 to 8 weeks old if you don't want kids you need to have him castrated or separate him out.

According to the National Pygmy Goat Assoc. sexual maturity can occur anywhere between 4-12 mo for males and females, but bucks have been known to breed as early as 8 weeks, and does can be bred occas that early so it is recommended to separate the sexes at 8 week. Even take the buck away from Mom if you are concerned.
