Abstract: This study was performed to determine the live weight and linear body measurement in the five coats colored red Sokoto goat ecotypes. For this purpose, a total of 200 goats were used, and classified into five (5) different groups of coat colored ecotypes and subgroups (males and females). The result showed that dark red coat colored goats had significantly higher mean body weight than the other coat colors (p<0.05). BW and CVRL in dark red were significantly higher compared to the other ecotypes. However, variegated coat colored red Sokoto goat had significantly higher HW compared to the others except the dark red coat colors, furthermore, variegated coat colored red Sokoto goat also had significantly higher CC compared to all the red Sokoto goat ecotypes. It was concluded that dark red and variegated coat colored goat had similar linear body measurements and dark red Sokoto goat ecotypes was recommended for goat production.
