What do you do with them in the winter? Do they come inside?
Here is the great thing about having farm animal pets. They’re hardy!
The chickens, you need to do nothing. NOTHING! They roost in my window sill or up in the bushes and puff themselves out and do just fine.
The goats just need a dry place to get out of the wind. That’s my ‘barn’ wrapped with a tarp and a kindergarten mat. I change the bedding more frequently since they spend more time in there. In the summer, they sleep on the porch. I almost never need fresh straw. But during the winter, I throw down a layer of cardboard on top of the old straw and fill that bad boy up with new straw. When it gets to deep, I just roll the ‘barn’ to it’s next location and start over.
The only cold weather precaution is to make sure they have food and break a hole in the water for them.
