    Usually when goats have Flaky Skin like My Myotonic goat does, and a copper colored tail is a sign of a Copper/zinc deficiency. Im looking into buying Copper Buloses for all of them. its like a pill capsul with copper in it. and im changing there minerals that have more zinc in them :)

    As a matter of fact, any vitamin or mineral deficiency can result in flaky skin. Not just copper.

    Wow, that is very interesting. Thank you for taking the time to explain it to me. I hope to get goats sometime in the future, likely not for a couple more years though.
