    How much feed

    Thank you! I agree. I think it is too much. They still had some this morning. There is probably no way i could figure out the math to get it right. I am not even sure how much they weight, only that I can lift her and barely lift him lol. I originally was only feeding them in the evening and...

    Goat bloat?

    oh okay. I got alfalfa because that is what the lady I got them from said she was giving them because she didn't have any brush for them to eat. So should I just get a square bale of timothy hay and hang it in their shed? or just throw it outside? Does it matter if it gets rained on? I know hay...

    Goat bloat?

    Thank you so much for the info. The reason I thought bloat was just cause she look a little wider this morning than I remembered lol. The only things I could think of that would casue that is bloat, pregnancy, or just being chunky. I dont mind chunky. They do have access to alfalfa pellets...

    Goats and chickens

    Awesome thanks! The only thing the chickens will have access is water. The goats may or may not be in there with them. I wanted to make sure there were no issues if they were together.

    Goat shelter

    Okay! Here is the completed shed! It isn't purdy but does the job. We put shingles on the roof and weather treated the plywood.

    This happened today....

    Thankfully her brother is not so adventurous. She is so funny, it's hard to get mad when she is just doing what goats do. Though I wish she would climb in her spool. It's like she only wants to climb in things she isn't allowed too. Crazy goat.

    This happened today....

    No. She used my chicken coop then jumped on the chicken run. I didn't think she could get on the run. I thought she would fall off.

    Oh this goat. She is a nut! She is safe and sound. I spent the afternoon making sure there would be no more roof top shenanigans.
