    So, long story short, I put some goat feed, its 16% protein all purpose goat rations, associated feeds, into a bowl inside the chicken coop so our ND baby can eat in peace away from the big goats and dogs.... so he hates the rain and is curled up in a nest box... chickens ran to the feed.... Any reason its bad for the chickens getting into it is about a cup of feed pellets, and grains and alittle molasses....

    I don't see how it would hurt them. I'd be more worried about he goat gorging on chicken feed.

    I hope goat feed doesn't hurt chickens. Mine go out of their way to eat my goats' feed.
