    Just got the results of my first fecals.

    Well, I just got the results of the first fecals that I sent off. Can anyone give me some advice? Should I deworm? Four goats need nothing but maybe three do. At least Cocci is out, I am happy about that. These are my results.

    What kind of microscope do I need?

    So I told DH that a microscope was an absolute must have for the farm. I am searching the Web for what kind and getting conflicting info on if I need a minimum of x10 magnification or if it can start at x40.

    Does anyone know what this is?

    A few of the does have had clumpy poop and I found this under the microscope, but don't know what it is: At first I thought it was just debris, but there are a lot of them... The first pic is one of them on medium power. It looks like 3 bubbles touching each other. @Southern by choice...
