    These are myths that I had thought to be true. I had been watching pretty closely for signs and changes in their behavior, eating, and feces. None of my little guys have had any form of abnormal stools since they were 10-14 days old. I was told that yellowish and mooshier stools weren’t uncommon for goats so young.

    I have been keeping my eyes open for things like blood, worms, and things that shouldn’t be present. I’m used to cats and dogs and finding larger things like tapeworms, roundworms, etc. things that could be seen and observed. I didn’t see anything that I believed to be wrong.

    I’ve been pretty diligent about keeping their small space clean and dry. I’m finding it very difficult to get all of the wet and solid waste cleaned up. The ground they are on is a gravel floor covered with straw. That isn’t a very good choice of flooring for these little garden hoses with four legs.
