What Are Baby Goats Called?

Baby goats are called kids. Another name for a baby goat is billy. Billy is also a name used for a male goat. Neutered male goats are called wethers.

A group of goats is referred to as a trip, herd or tribe. Goats are related to sheep and were domesticated about 10,000 years ago in Iran. Goats are herbivores and eat grass, leaves and herbs. Goats don't swallow their food much when eating; instead, they regurgitate their food. This regurgitation is called cud. Goats chew the cud thoroughly before swallowing their food for the final time. Goats are bred for milk, meat and wool.
