Is it normal for goatlings to have flaky horns? They kinda split off with the look that is common in petrified wood.

My goatlings are about 4 months old now. The 3 males are the worst, but even the female shows it a little.If it's something really bad or odd, I'll get you a picture.
I think I'm feeding them all the right stuff,alfalfa,medicated grain, a mineral block,salt block and free will baking soda.
It almost looks like they are flaking down as fast as they are growing out.

Thanks Clint

Hello,

yes, it's normal for this age. No need to worry.

The horns get larger around as they get longer so peeling gives them a place to expand.
