This is awesome and very informative! Do you think this same method will work on sheep and alpacas?

I thought I was doing fecals with 2 grams of poop, and did not know how in the world you could do 4 as mine did not poop that much. I was having trouble on the smaller ones even getting 2 grams.

Then I realized all this time I was doing them in ounces. ;)
