Ice been looking high and low for an answer and have come up with nothing, maybe you know.
We have a chicken wire chicken coop built into the corner of our barn. It houses 20 chickens and a few ducks (all layers) we have been offered a dairy cow and wanted to put it on the other side of the barn (probably about 20-30ft away) but were told that chickens cant live near dairy cows because of bacteria.
The chickens wont have access to the cow stall or the milking area, but i dont want to take chances, or turn the cow away, or rebuild the coop, unless we have to.
Do you know, can cows and chickens live together? And if not, do you have any links where i can read up some more about it so i can make another plan?
Thanks all, sorry for the long post.
