    Hi everyone. Never have raised chickens before but want to have a few for eggs. Probem is that I don't have coop for them. I have a shed where my 3 goats live and I was thinking to house chickens with goats. I built a shelf for them 5 ft from the floor and a ladder for them to climb it. I am not sure if they would get alone. Can you share your thoughts on that. Thanks.
