Bird House Grouds and Goats

littlereo(Conklin Mi.)September 29, 2005

Does anybody know if Goats can eat the Vines of the bird house Grouds?

We are moveing the pasture, and there are Grouds and Vines there. It is not the right time to pick the Grouds, but if they cannot eat the vines, then we will need to do something else.

Thanks

Not sure what a groud is. Here is a site that may be helpful:

And another:

Or perhaps your local university has a poisonous plant index for the plants in your area.

Good Luck

My wife threw a broken gourd into the barnyard last fall. In the spring a healthy batch of bird house gourd plants came up. They are still out there growing over the fence and all through a crepe myrtel. Lots of gourds on it. The goats won't touch the plants but the guineas like them.
