I am new to homesteading, But it the turn of the economy, government and everything else going on in the world we decided to take a leap of faith and become self reliant. We started last February and got 8 chicks which now give us about 3 dozen eggs a week in the summer. We are now thinking about getting two Nigerian dwarf goats this spring for milk, cheese and maybe even soap. With that said I will be converting part of my shed for them as a shelter. Chickens were easy once we were past the chick stage. How hard are goats. We figure Nigerian due to their size would be the best fit. Any pointers and suggestions would be great. We are growing our own food also and canning too.
