Hello! My boyfriend and I bought our first little home on some land! Not much land but enough. We finally have our whole house fenced and our dogs are really enjoying it but NOW is the time where I want to get into raising chickens, ducks, possibly small goats if my space acquires it! Any who here are my few questions: 1) How MESSY are ducks, really? I understand when they eat they need to drink, they need some water source. People keep telling me not to do it because of the mess but honestly I love ducks and always have. 2) How hard is it to co-habitate the chickens and ducks in the same area? I understand chickens need to be in a coop at night and ducks just need something to be covered in (dog house). I know once they are older you can feed them the same food. 3) Last but not least how much room do pygmy goats need? I know they need toys so they don't get bored and I have heard they are good with sharing space with poultry. I only want a total of 4 birds, I would then add the 2 pygmies as I know they need a friend. How do you separate the goat from eating the birds food? I understand that two goats can share a large dog house as well. My biggest concern is letting them have enough room to roam. Thanks so much, I know there was a LOT of questions but I am so excited to get started!!
