  Hi Sunny,

It's been a while since I've checked in on this site, but you had commented on how I have a dog that gets along with our chickens here at D & D farm. Bonnie just turned 8 years old and has always been very well behaved. She guarded the chicks when they were a few days old like they were her own. We now have an almost 6 month old pup, Kupkake, and she is learning to not chase the chickens as well. She is very smart and I'm glad that she realizes we are all one big happy family.
We are planning to move our farm to South Carolina in mid 2011. Once there we will be adding larger live stock to the bunch. Should be interesting introducing the dogs to cows and pigs. Our cats stay inside, but watch the chickens roam around the yard from their screened in porch. Big Foot would be the only one to worry about I think.
Thanks for stopping by.
Take care,

Come visit me, D & D Farm.

  Hi Sunny,
Thanks for the comment on my farm. I am so happy I joined the site. It's full of nice hardworking pet loving character's like us. I wanted to start growing quail to add some diversity to the acreage; I just have not had any luck with incubators plus we have our hand full for the time being.
Happy Farming!

  Thanks for the comments
I used to go by the moniker "Squid" when I was in the music business and since it paid for the seven acres and freedom 45, why not.

  Thank You! It actually used to be horse stalls but I remodeled it into a chicken coop after we sold them. I have been to backyardchickens.com before but I’m not a member. It is a very helpful site!

I much agree with your motto! Everything is better home-made. I have a dream of growing all of my own food! What yummy meals that would make!

Hope you have a great day!

Thanks for visiting my page. We love our rabbits! My daughter has been showing for 8 years. We are only doing local showing now because of the economy. The bunnies are entered in the state fair (next month) and we are hoping for some good results. Last year, my daughter won best in show and received a college scholarship!!

You asked about bees and where to start. I would recommend looking for bee clubs in your area, and taking a beginners class, which many folks do. There is also a book in the dummies series which i think is a great survey of the basics. After doing these things you should be able to get started with your own bees. The learning never stops though, and many people will argue different sides of what they think is best. Not everyone can be right of course. Several grains of salt may be needed
good luck to you.

  mouflon sheep
Hi, you don't need any special permits or licenses to raise mouflon sheep. They are true wild sheep simular to the big horn and alaskan dall sheep. But as far as the USDA and the Dnr are concerned they are just sheep.

My new coturnix quail babies are growing so fast. And I just realized that one is a rare color. It has white flight feathers. You dont see that very often in these birds. Unless it is a tuxedo color. Which this one is not.
