    is it ok to give goats peashells after the peas have been shelled?

    did i overlook a feeds/feeding forum or is this one ok?

    no this is the right place to post that question.

    Yup peas are perfectly fine to feed to goats :) -- some may turn their noses at it though so its trial and error on what they will eat

    My goats love the pea shells after I shell them It is weird, mine will only eat them out of my hand. If I put them in a feeder, nope they will not eat them. Go figure. :shrug:

    So lets just say they do eat them because I hand feed them.

    And when you've picked all the peas you want, you can pull the plants and give them to your goats :wink:

    Mine got into the garden one time and I came out to chase them off, one of them was running off trailing pea vines behind her. Didn't want to let them go, so she decided to keep them as carry out.

    Well, there is a minimum number of posts for each member before they can view or send a pm (private message) this was mainly due to the fact that the forum had issues with spam.

    viewtopic.php?f=28&t=6674

    That issue can be seen here at the link above as well as here viewtopic.php?f=28&t=2749

    Hope this explains why. :)

    they also have a way of letting me know i've just walked out the door...
    or that ive just pulled up in the driveway.
    or that its about to get dark and they are ready to go to bed.
    or that i'm paying the dogs too much attention.
    or that they dont like it when i wear clothes that have buttons..

    Unfortunately it will be tomorrow that Stacey will be doing the honor of "upgrading" your status....as Administator of the forum.

    Think you can wait that long to see that pm? I really hope it is something good!
