The present study was carried out at Coastal Saline zone (Gosaba Block), West Bengal for an elaborative study on growth of Black Bengal goats. The average birth weights of Black Bengal goats obtained in different occasion revealed that there was significance difference (P<
0.05) in the average birth weight of male and female kids. Seasonal influence had significance effect (P<
0.05) on the birth weight of kids in Bengal goats in coastal zone. Effect of type of birth significantly (P<
0.05) differ in the average birth weight in all the four types of birth. In the average birth weight of male and female kids it was found that there was significant difference (P<
0.05) in the body weight. Body weight in summer month had no significant difference (P>
0.05) where as body weight between monsoon and winter months differs significantly (P<
0.05). The birth weight in single kidding recorded to be the maximum while kids in quadruplet or multiple births was the lower weight and was found to be significantly different (P<
0.05) in all the type of births in B. B. goat in coastal areas on Sundarban. Statistically there is a significance difference (P<
0.05) in the birth weight and body weight gain in the later stage of life in the goats born in the multiple type of birth.
