I'm curious, but when you administer the copper rods in a peanut butter/molasses worm ball or even a fig newton - one way in which I just read in another thread -do you place the copper rods back into a capsule or do you stuff the rods directly into the worm ball or fig? I ask because sometimes I don't have an extra capsule for one of the goats and I mix the rods into the worm balls. I'm just curious what you guys use. For me it's a double edged sword.. I personally don't like to touch the copper rods directly, but a couple of the goats don't like the capsules. No capsules in the worm ball definitely go down more easily than with a capsule.
