    Husband work just called they have a damaged shipment for us of carrots!!! I will be shredding some for the chickens and hubby wondered if the goats could have some? There are cases worth that are good but I don't even think I could can all these for our use and the chicken shredded. I am assuming that they would need to be shredded?

    Shredded or chopped small probably. Just don't give them too much too fast. You could dehydrate them.

    Yes, they can eat carrots, give in small amounts because any sudden change of diet can upset their rumens.. carrots store well in a cool dark place..

    Ours love carrots. We just give them to the goats one at a time (and only one). They run around like they have cigars in their mouths. I had to tell my Dad not to give them so many; carrots like beets and spinach, they are high in iron which is a copper blocker.
