    hello,
    i find some barley grains in feces of my doe, is it normal to find some barley grain or any other grain in feces of goats or it may be that the goat is sick (dyspepsia)

    It's normal to see a few whole grains in the poop. As long as your goat isn't showing any signs of being sick and no diarrhea I wouldn't worry about it. Barley and oats are two off the top of my head that I see in mine.

    I mix my own grain, and I see it all the time. They are fine.
