Two days ago I got two new additions to the farm, with two new additions SOOOOOON to follow. These two Pygmy goats that are the sweetest things you've ever seen (they think they are dogs) stand next to the chicken coop all day long...not moving from the fence....the chickens come over and the goats smell them and the chickens don't do anything, in fact the hens don't really notice them I think. But Mr. Foghorn a newly rescued young Leghorn seems to be glued to the fence where the goats are. He does nothing ...no crowing, no pecking, nothing just lays there. I had a thought! Keeping in mind that I just rescued Mr. Foghorn a fews days ago, only had my hens for three weeks and my daughters brought home 12 new chicks on Sunday that are living in the coop as well, I have worried about losing eggs and interrupting my hens schedules but they seem to be doing fine....still laying 4 eggs one day and 2 the next and so on, but back to my thought. There seems to be a connection with Mr. Foghorn and the goats. I wonder what would happen if I let the goats in to their coop? I've heard stories of a lonely goat living with a lonely hen being a success. What do you think ? This way I could enlarge my coop yard to sort of a free range, with a goat house. Can they co-exist?
