I'm always checking poop and today I found what looked like 3 grains of white rice in one of my young goats poop. I worm them orally with 1% ivermectin and I just wormed them last week. I have never actually seen any worms before other than in pictures. I picked them out with a stick to see if they were moving and they didnt.I'm not even sure if they are suppose to move or not so any info would be greatly appreciated. Also would like to know what kind of worms look like rice

Those are Tapeworm egg pouches. Tapeworms require a white wormer. Valbazen or Safe Guard.

I would do the one passing eggs and the ones under 12 weeks old. Adult goats normally fight them off well.
