I've been using black oil sunflower seeds as treats for awhile and looked into using them for weight gain on my doe. I didn't realize the calcium/phosphorus ratio was so off on these. I don't think I'll be giving them to the boys anymore.
My does each get a cup of BOSS with their grain when they're on the milk stand. If you are only giving them as a treat (a small handful here and there) I wouldn't think the BOSS would hurt your boys.

I use chewable vitamin C tablets for treats. My goats love them! I buy huge bottles of them at Costco.

Another thing I use for treats is unsalted peanuts in the shell. The goats devour them!

How bad is the ratio. I give each of my boys a cup a day?
All of the info I pulled up was a little different, but around 1:6.
