My life in the country with my goats.com site

Chickens, Goats and Dogs! Chickens, Goats and Dogs! Oh My!!


We have had lots of rain lately so our goats are not really going out.  I have heard of people who had goats that enjoyed or didn’t mind the rain, but not Gullringstorp goats. They really hate the rain, so we have indoor activities instead.

Our chickens, on the other hand seem to love the rain. Our Brahma chickens really like the rain and stay out till they are soaking wet. I always worry that they may get sick or something, but I think chickens can take it.  No one has gotten sick yet and they really do get  soaked.

 

Here are chickens, goats and a dog:

    My husband decided that these concrete slabs will keep our chickens inside their yard

    Leif makes sure that the slabs firmly in place. By the way, what do you think if the beard.. He grew this for me while I was in NY.
