In the study, total 16 numbers of healthy male (n=8) and female (n=8) khagani goats of Jammu region  and  8 nos.( irrespective of sex) kids of same breed were selected for estimation of certain blood haematological parameters . Blood samples were collected from jugular vein for estimation of haemoglobin, PCV, TEC, TLC, MCV, MCH and MCHC. The concentrations of haemoglobin, PCV and TEC were found significantly higher (Ped significantly (P and kids. The values of MCV differs significantly (P Again, it was observed that the kids had a much lower value of MCH as compared to the adult goats and the variation was found to be significant (Pds as compared to the adult one. Again, the male goats had a significantly higher (P
