We are getting out of the goat business. We should be selling our last two tomorrow. We bought the goats a nice dog house at Petsmart. http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11668215&f=PAD/psNotAvailInUS/No Would this be suitable for laying hens? We would add chicken wire so that they had roaming space. Keep in mind that one adult Pygmy goat, one nearly adult, and two semi-babies were able to fit in it comfortably.
