    Hi! My name is Sandlyn. I've been a chicken owner for 10 years. Currently I have 14 eight month old Columbian Plymouth X Red hens. I also have a dog. She's a Chow Collie cross. I live in rural Manitoba Canada on 5 acres. This summer I'm planning on purchasing two baby Pygmy goats. I'm hoping for some info on housing goats with chickens on my small acreage.

    Hello and welcome! I can't help you on chickens with goats. I can tell you that they get along fine with my three mules. The mules did try and stomp the chickens, but chicken don't run in a predictable escape direction, or, at a constantly velocity, so, the mules gave up trying. Everybody now gets along just fine.

    Sorry I don't know anything about goats but, have seen photos now and then on BYC with chickens on a goats back. I would think the chickens would try to eat goat feed and vice versa.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Oh Pygmies are a fun goat to keep!! I used to keep them and they are such entertaining characters!!

    I have never kept them with chickens however some people do. You might stop by our Other Livestock section of the forums and post there...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/22/other-pets-livestock

    I hope someone can help you there.

    Welcome to our flock!
