Found out the goat I am going to get from stepDD is a nigerian dwarf. I've been looking for plans to build him a house and have a few questions. First and foremost: Will he be able to share the same outdoor space (roughly 1/8 of an acre) with the chickens or will he need to be fenced off from them? I can add space if more is needed because I basically have 2 acres to play with for garden, goat, chickens, ducks. Second: I found plans for a large dog house that is 34" high x 32" wide x 48" long, with a 16" H opening in the front. Is this going to be big enough for him to have as foul weather shelter? Also, the plans call for treated lumber to be used ONLY in the skids, floor, and roof. Do I have to forget about using treated lumber altogether in case he chews? Would he be inclined to chew on the roof, floor, and skids? If I decided to paint it I would of course use latex, non toxic paint. What I think is very funny is that my SO already has big letters for the front of his harley shed that say 'hog house', so of course we will have to have the same type of letters that proclaim 'hen house' 'goat house' and 'duck house'. The neighbors are either going to think we are trying to learn to read or that we're just really forgetful.
