My husband decided on consolidating the housing for our pygmy goats (4 -- we just got them last month -- they are so cute!) and our soon to be chickens (a dozen give or take -- hopefully will get them this spring). They'll be sharing the run with each other -- 200 sq ft -- and the goat shed and chicken coop will be adjacent to each other, sharing one wall. My husband preferred to do this rather than have two separate buildings and runs (he works and has to do this during his infrequent free time). Is this a workable arrangement do any of you think? I've seen chickens out loose at horse barns and the goats had two geese that ran their farmyard when they were babies. I ask, because an acquaintace of mine just had her favorite chicken murdered by one of her geese (murder is about the best word for it -- the goose just decided to kill the chicken and nothing was going to stop her; poor chickie). I don't want to condone interspecies homicide if I can help it.
