      I hope they can eat pollen.

      We had a drought last year. This year, the trees are super happy. So happy that everything is coated in green and yellow pollen. The truck, the car, the chicken coops, the water buckets, the feed. We wash and wash and everything just winds up yellow and green.

      I honestly don't know if the goats and chickens can eat this stuff and still be OK but I sure as heck hope that's the case. It's just everywhere. I've never seen anything like it.

      You should live in North Carolina then. Every spring everything is covered with yellow pollen. You can see it blowing through the air, it blows in through open windows to coat everything inside. If you sit on outdoor furniture before rinsing it off, you stand up with a pollen print of your backside on your clothing. NC is a big agricultural state and I've never heard of livestock getting sick from too much pollen but I admittedly don't read the farm report.

      Same here in St. Louis, but it is finally decreasing with the rains we have had. Now its mold spores everywhere. Everyone is sneezing and coughing.

      I would think the animals would be ok eating it as it would be part of their nature diet in the wild.

      Same with Savannah, GA where it's pine pollen. Absolutely everything, including your eyeballs, get coated.
