I did a lot of research before I got goats….but nothing really prepares you. I am so thankful the lady I got them from is so helpful!
This is what I have done so far…..
Not being a fan of commercially made animal feed I made up my own.
Steam rolled oats and barley and black oil sunflower seeds. I used one part each but I don’t think that much sunflower is necessary.
Easy, cheap and no corn or soy!
This is their feeding area. I used a 3.00 plastic crate for a hay feeder. Works just fine and dandy. I originally had a laundry basket but it wasn’t sturdy enough.
I have always kept the chickens water above the nest boxes next to the heat lamp so I don’t have to use a water heater. This set up worked great with goats because I can put their feed and oyster shell up on the shelf out of the goats reach! Also gives the chickens an area to escape to.
Having goats is fun. Lots of work but they are really a fun pet.
