Are you smarter than a goat?

The barn is set up to house both the goats and chickens.  The problem with that is we have to have a large gate that lets the goats roam free bht them locks out the chickens.  I had done some research on goat proof chicken feeders and doirs and decided to try and creafe a door. 

This is our prototype.



The door is a u shape in hopes the goats can’t make the turn.

However, the nigerian dwarfs are still pretty small and we have done all the work to discover Aspen can still get through


So, i either work on the feeder or hope Aspen will continue to grow and eventually not be able to squeeze theough the spot.
