    Hello, ok I've been reading about colors of eyelids and I can not seem to see what colors they are talking about. Can any of you post a pic what color the goats eyelids are when they are fine and what color they are when they need to be wormed? Anything would help me out!

    well it is kind of based on your own goats natural healthy color. If it becomes paler then that you need to watch and then white is danger zone and must be taken care of.

    But if you search FAMACH you might see some pictures of what we are talking about

    The eye lids are not a 100% tell tell factor. You will need to do fecal floats on themn also.

    oh yes that is correct. Always try to get a fecal done when you are unsure of their condition. Not a bad idea to get one done a couple times a year just to keep a good look out on how they are doing.

    I am learning how to do it but i dont trust myself 100% yet.

    But they are pretty easy to do so if you can purchase the supplies to do it yourself you will save yourself money in the future
