I read that goats don't taste the spicy the same as humans do. Mine never hated me for it. He didn't like to be forced to take anything, I don't think the spice specifically was a problem. He also voluntarily took raw garlic at the age of 4 weeks. @NDinKY , I also used it as coccidia prevention, but I didn't have a bunch of kids together, I just had one or two at a time, and never had a parasite problem here.
I also used LOH parasite formula after the mom kidded and the fecal later on was negative.
I am using LOH, too. And I used it when my does were young and had trouble with coccidia and it has worked extremely well as a preventative for that. I was only doing it once a week back then for them. They were around four months old at the time though so I don't know if that made a difference.
I will try giving the babies just the herbs with no honey and see how they react. I just don't want to start off on the wrong foot with them. (pray)
