I’ve read onions are bad for goats. We have wild chives all over the yard and they’re impossible to eradicate. Our new three month old doelings have been eating our grass and the chives and leaves (instead of the alfalfa we have set out lol). Is this ok?

Chives have been fine and I never had milk taste any different. We had tons at the old farm and they loved them.

Never had an issue with clover either but one thing I learned with the horses and not sure if it could happen in some goats. When you don't see a horse drooling from clovers is a bad thing because they don't process it like other horses and their kidneys can bit process it. In those cases you have to force salt intake to jump restart the kidneys . Had this happen with one of my uncle's Colts and had it almost starr with my mini stallion once when the hubby gave him a big pad of clover hay. Only seen it in male horses before and never in mares or my goats. So maybe some goats can have the same reaction as some of the horses?
