    We have had a few chickens for 2 years now, and with a recent move to a small farm, have added four young goats to their yard. I found BYC while researching ways to keep our goats from getting to the chicken feed. We made a small entrance to the coop, but anything that our girls would go through is large enough for the naughty kids as well! Any ideas would be appreciated!

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us.

    I have no experience with goats, but someone may show up with a workable solution.

    If not, you may have to just "deal with it " until the goats grow and can no longer enter the coop?[​IMG]

    But wonder how large the chicken door is, maybe it could be blocked down to a little smaller size temporarily? Or place a barricade to keep those goats away from the coop altogether.

    Thanks, all! We decided to dig a small "chunnel" (chicken tunnel) under the edge of the coop, and so far that is working. My girls seem to enjoy the company of the goats;I will post pictures of their antics soon!
