It was good to hear from you! As far as your bats go, about the only thing I can think of is the bat houses, and that's if you can convince them to move in. We haven't had a big problem with them roosting so far -- we do like to watch them in the evenings darting around. I'll check with a couple of people here and see what they think! As far as the goats go, I'm thinking Pygora -- a cross between the Angora and Pygmy. From what I've read, they are a good source of fiber. Ayn, my neighbor has Nigerians and Nubians for her milk, and she agrees that you want no less than three. Me? I'm thinking between 3 and 5, depending on the amount of fiber that can be sheared. The same will go for my sheep. Now, as for the Angora rabbits, I'm thinking maybe five to seven. I really need to talk to a breeder before I make a firm decision though! Have you decided what type of chicken you want yet? We have a menagerie, but mostly large brown egg layers. Our egg sales help to contribute to the bottom line, and right now we're averaging between 50 and 75 dozen a month in sales. I'm just wondering though, if our production will continue through the winter. We do have a light in the coop, but they still always seem to slow down in colder weather. Keep us posted on the progress on your farm. I love to hear about how others are doing, and how they're doing it!
