In the Brooder
- Aug 1, 2012
I'm thinking of getting goats/sheep (one or two) maybe both. The only problem, I don't know how they're going to get along with the chickens. Will they trample them? Thanks!
My goats and sheep have separate living quarters (chooks have fenced in, netted coop and run, but free range during the day). But the chickens definitely hang out with the goats. I did have one chicken with a broken leg that I think was from a goat. But for the most part, they ignore each other.
The chickens clean up any spilled grain, which can happen due to overexcited goats during feeding time. In fact, they all mob the area so that once the goats leave the feed pans alone, they can move in and get goodies.
