    My ober doe has been having clumpy poos recently with undigested grain. They are starting to become more berryish again, but still have lots of undigested grain in them. Does this indicated too much grain? Or another problem.

    Has she been tested for worms or cocci?

    I don't think they're an issue. She was wormed at freshening in May and I've been fecaling, but I'm still awfully new at it, so I did send a sample off to get tested, just to be sure.

    It could mean too much grain, not enough roughage etc. it can also mean a sluggish rumen...too much change to quickly. Take a really long time to get the bacteria going to eat real grain, it's a heck of alot easier to digest gound up slurried pellets. Vicki
