Do any of you keep your chickens and horses in the same field? We're looking at getting a 1.25 acre place and are trying to figure out where to put the chickens. The back 1/3 acre will be fenced with horse fence/no climb, and I was toying with the idea of having my husband build a chicken house back there and just let the horses (one or two) and chickens share the space.
Otherwise the chickens (4 now, eventually 8) will be relegated to a much smaller space once my husband gets around to building a fenced in enclosure just for them.
Any thoughts/experiences with this? Thanks.
