We're new to chickens this summer and we now have 7 regular sized hens plus a banty hen and one rooster in a large fenced area with two pygmy goats (we had the goats first). The chickens are in a new coop we built similar to the Purina free coop plan double-sized but the problem is we didn't realize the goats would fit through the chicken-sized door to the coop! They love chicken food so I don't want to leave food out all day for the chickens because the goats would just eat it. We have been feeding the chickens in the coop at night when we lock them in to get them to learn to go into the coop and also to prevent the goats from eating all their food. I don't put lots of food in because I want them to eat it all so the goats don't get it. During the day they have free run of the goat pen to scratch for bugs but it is pretty lacking in vegetation, and I am worried about underfeeding them. They seem pretty hungry at night when we feed and lock them in. First question: how much should I be feeding 9 chickens a day? Second: for those with goats, any ideas on how to goat proof a feeding area for the chickens? I can't even put hay as bedding in the nest boxes because the goats think it is their personal feeding station.
