It's been rough here. I lost my baby (Nigerian Dwarf buckling)due to stones. I knew nothing about that but now I know! The very next day my beautiful sweet Pygora died in an accident. I was devastated and learned from that too. I had to let go of 2 male quails and keep the other two separated cause they fight like crazy. Learned about that too. I got two bunnies (both girls). And last night and tonight I got two new baby goats. Nubian girl and boy. The boy still takes the bottle even though he's eating. He eats and drinks like a growing boy. My bad dog killed two of my pullets. He'd love to eat the bunnies and goats too. Bad boy! I have learned to be very careful with him.

I got 8 new baby chicks and 2 keets and I'm getting a Nigerian Dwarf Buckling on April 1st. All are so cute! I finally got the chicks and keets outside. Yes!! Oh yea I also got quail. Those male fight too much for my taste. Only got 2 males for now and one had his feathers pulled out yesterday. I separated the bad one in a box for awhile and put Tea Tree Oil on the others sore bald head before putting them back together. I figured that the smell would repel the other from pecking and also heal the injured one. I seems to have worked. They are so cute, but so troublesome. Share your comments.

  Hope everyone is having a great holiday season!
My goats are getting more playful and vocal. So cute. But my nigerian dwarf still won't let me pet her. I have to get some pictures uploaded. I sure do miss having chickens; been begging people that I know have chickens for some, cause I don't want factory eggs. I was gonna wait to start over with chicks in the Spring but I will start with at least two laying hens before then.

Hi Jennie! Our rabbits our housed in an open air barn - traditional style barn with a gambrel roof and loft. We have hanging cages set up and each bunny has it's own cage. We really love our rabbits and have been showing for over 10 years.

  I understand how that feels. Someones dogs came and got three of my four Pekin Ducks. I felt so bad, they carried off two and left one dead one. I looked out at the ducks and was wondering why it was laying funny. When I got out there I found out. The one that was left was so traumatized to the point she couldn't speak, would just open her mouth. Thank God she is better now.

  A little intro on my farm
My farm is very small. I don't a family to help me with it so it must be managable for me. I have 2 acres. I just got 2 young does: Lilly is a pygora and Naana is a Nigerian Dwarf. I'm still trying to get Naana to let me touch her. Gotta domesticate her by Spring so that I can mate her and get milk and babies. I will mate Lilly too. I will get beautiful fiber to spin from her and some milk. I had 6 hens and 1 rooster. They all got butchered by dogs within 2 days time in Sept. Horrible time! I am now working on repairs to the coop and electric fencing before I get more chickens. My goats are now protected by the fence. Bring it on preditors! I have Lucas my Australian Cattle brat dog and 3 brat cats too. I love them all. Since I just recently moved into this new home, I have to restart my plant business. I am State Certified/licensed. More to come on that later.

  My plants
Hi Margaret, I just recently moved and I need to retake inventory of what I have presently and then add to it as I get settled. My mind and body have been so busy that I am at a blank right now. Is there something you are looking for? Off the top of my head I know I have large blueberry plants.
