    If there is a thread on this subject please link and I'll delete this one.

    I have Nigerian Dwarf goats. I would like to place a trampoline inside their pen so the goats can jump/relax/play on it while covering and providing a chicken run.

    My question for those with knowledge of chicken behavior and possibly first hand experience with goat/chicken cohabitation:
    If the goats climb on the coop will noise have a negative impact on the chickens well being. Will the noise of walking/jumping/playing on coop cause stress to hens? Will the hens adapt to the environment?

    Thank you in advance to any advice. I'm trying to take everything into consideration prior to construction and utilize the fenced area.
