I hope it is OK for me to post this in both the poultry and goat forums. We just moved into our new place and are trying to plan the layout a little. I have one spot which I would like to use as either a coup or part of a small pasture for milk goats. The only thing is that there are large fur trees overhanging and the area gets covered with needles. Is this particularly bad for chickens/goats (as per forum)? I donât think the previous owners were much into homesteading (based on the property) but it looks like someone, a while ago, had some kind of a pens (one with chicken wire and another with that 4 x 4 wire mesh) in this same spot. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
