    Hello guys, a friend of mine ofered me a free mama goat because she has to leave ky to NC and I am wondering if I can let the mama goat stay in the big 40'X12' chicken pen till I get her own shed build.
    Dose any of you has put goats with chickens together?
    Or should I let the mama goat stay in my storage shed with my tools till I get something build on the weekend?
    Thanks for the Answers.
    Omran
    God Bless.

    I often put some of my hens over in the goat pen with my four Nigerian Dwarfs. The grass is nice and tall in there and there are lots of bugs and stuff to eat and they all do fine together. Plus the hens enjoy a day off from the roosters which is the main reason I put them there.

    You said how large the pen was but you didn't say how many chickens you had in there. As long as there is enough room for everyone to move around and stay out of one anothers way they should all be fine.
