    We have our chickens (obviously), and some goats. We are smack dab in the middle of the city but with a decent backyard (by so. california standards anyway). Here are some of our goats:

    The goats hanging out on the patio:

    This is their house shortly after we put it in place. It is just in the side area between our house and fence. It has a few things different now, but that's pretty much it:

    A picture of our yard several months ago. Now we have a different chicken coop and run, and a garden but it isn't too much different:

    PotterWatch, where do you live in California that you are zoned for goats in the burbs? We're up in Northern California and in the mountains/country and we can only have 6 goats per acre; I don't think that's very many. We are the only goat owners around and we are more like just a house that has goats, not a farm or anything.
    Oh I forgot pictures:

    Our city ordinances say that we are not allowed male goats, but that is the only reference we have been able to find about them so that is what we are going by. We are also restricted to 14 hens, no roosters.

    Your goats are adorable! And you are right, you do have a big yard.
    I also live in Nor Cal and in my city we are allowed 2 pygmy goats in the burbs - although I don't think I have the room for them right now. Thanks for the pics you guys! Very cool. [​IMG]
