    I chop nothing up and they still eat it. Any produce from the garden except onions and peppers they eat.

    We have an apple tree who's apples get full of bugs and rotten and stuff, and the goats eat them. The apples are on the ground, and if the apple is too big, the goat takes off a piece with its bottom teeth. A few times Annie has choked on an apple.... not pretty, but if she would chew it better she wouldn't have that problem.

    My goats will not even touch watermelon but if you show them a lollipop they love it. Gave them peanut butter crackers and you better watch out they run clear over top of you for them. They also love ceral to eat..
