Joining our Poultry Friends, Nigerian Dwarf Goats!

As I mentioned in my first blog, I have always dreamed of owning a mini petting zoo or backyard farm. Another piece of that dream was added this week!! Please welcome our first two Nigerian Dwarf Goats! We haven’t named them yet and they won’t be coming to live with us until June as they are only one month old here.

So, to house them properly we purchased the shelter below and plan to customize the inside to accommodate the goats.

They will be sitting next to the chicken coop, but they have about a 30 x 40 area that they will share with the chickens all enclosed with a 6 foot chain link fence. Due to concerns of critters we’ll have an electric fence surrounding the outside of the chain link for added protection and poultry netting on top to keep the hawks from attacking the chickens.

We have a cousin that owned goats and is willing to give us some of the goat toys they still have which includes a couple of spools and a couple of huge tractor tires! Let the playtime begin!!
