    Good Morning, I have a new goat in a separate pen. My girls have found the goat feed and seem to like it, but I have also put a goat mineral block in the pen and they went wild over it. Do y'all think it's ok or should I ban them from the pen. Thanks in advance.

    I don't know a thing about goats, but I do know that goat feed is not formulated to the needs of chickens. Probably won't hurt them,
    but I don't see how there can be much benefit either. Remember, chickens eat any and everything, so just because they eat it doesn't
    mean that it will be good for them.

    I have goats and goat food tends to be high in minerals, particularly copper, that is usually not good for other animals. Can you rig up the goat feeder in a way that the chickens can't get to the food?
