    Has anybody kept goats and chickens in one shed? I only have one shed for my goats, but I want to keep a few chickens. Not sure if they would get alone.

    Goats will eat all the chicken feed. The chickens need to be locked up at night, goats like to get out. You can do it, but it is aggravating. I have goats and chickens but I try to keep them in separate areas. Plus the goats may accidentally step on your chickens. And possibly step on eggs laid on the ground.
