I was wondering also if you opened the copper and cooked it into the balls, or poured it in after they were done cooking, or if you hid the whole capsule in them.
Look at my comment and you shall see your answer lol

My goats need copper bolus so bad but they refuse any treat I try to give them.
In the mean time, you can try the syringe method.
Cut the tip off a 6 cc syringe. File any sharp edges. Copper dose this way is 1 cc per 60 pounds. Pour dose in the trimmed syring and top with probiotic paste to hold rods in. I always have a drenching syringe filled with water ready. Push the copper filled syringe to the corner of goats mouth to get rods behind tongue best you can..push rods in and follow up with water to help wash them down. It's fast, easy and my goats are used to it now so not much fussing.
