    Does anyone here use calf hutches for their goats?

    If yes - have you made the entrance smaller to lessen drafts, snow, rain etc?

    Just wondering.....

    closing in ....something like that...you have to be careful ...that the urine doesn't create ammonia smell...that will make your goats sick.......as Stacey mentioned...... people don't usually close them in..... :wink:

    I have a friend who uses them, but they move them every week or so and use the tractor to remove piles of bedding. They dont close the door in.
