    I have read a lot of places on the internet warning about goats and oak leaes. My pygmys have been eating them for 2 years with no apparent issues, is there something I'm not getting here? Like are only some types of oaks poisonous?

    Thanks!

    I give mine oak, maple, willows, cottenwood and pine. They only thing I don't give is cherry leaves. They only get a little at a time and they don't stuff themselves. I have 4 pygmy/fainters. I have not heard about oak leaves. Maybe someone else has.
