^ Great book! another resorce is http://fiascofarm.com/Are you interested in meat, pet, or dairy goats? bcause if you want dairy goats, there are more things to consider when building a shelter. Such as: do you want a milking stall? and if so, do you want it in the barn, or separate? and what ever kind of goats you have, if you intend to breed, it's extremely handy to have an extra stall for kidding, and a hundred other reasons. You may want to get Storey's guide to raising dairy(or meat) goats. Very useful book.
Yes! We started with a 16 by 16 three sided shed, I think. It was for our 6 Nigerians. At first I though it was way to big- they looked so tiny in itBuild as big as you can afford! I started with a 10x10 with two goats. Now I have a 26x12, 5 goats and it still doesn't seem big enough.
