    If I placed my chicken coop and run within my goat pen, would that be alright or would the goats tear down my chicken run fencing? I was hoping to let them run with the goats during the day.

    My experience with goats is if you use chicken wire they will be visiting the chickens in no time.

    I'd think they'd bust up the fencing unless you made sure it was of heavy gauge wire with good supports.

    The chicken run will work, but the goats might tear it down.
