  Hello Karen, it me Maisah @ Fatooms Halal Farm ty for stopping by... "Hi
So, how many of each animals did you start with?? What is a good number? And which do you enjoy having the most?
Thanks so much
Karen"

My Reply: When we first started out we only had one goat, ( a neighbors dog came and helped himself to him) :( and one lamb (Mr Lamb).. he is so sweet and very friendly... we had gotten about 50 chicks they grew nicely... and again a neighbors dog came and help themselves to a lot of them. so we decided to not have them free range much in the yard... We built a big coop with a very large run... we do let them out in the day and make sure they are back in at night. I am not a mast at breed names, but enjoy having my goats the most... I like my cows but they have a mind of their own at times when it comes too food and when they step on your foot... OMG... pain!!!! so just be careful around them.. and our girl likes to headbutt ... my chickens I enjoy also.. cuz they are sweet and I love eggs... and I am now at the pot of not having to buy any... :) we have 5 acres and started with 50 chickens, 4 cows, 3 lambs.. and 5 goats... our animals come and go (the males) the girls we keep for breeding. We have yet to sell our chickens either.. but will venture out to meat chickens soon... I do not know how many acres you have but I would start with 1 rooster, 3 hens, one male cow or calf (you will need to bottle feed the calf), 2 dairy goats.. one male and 1 female, and the same for sheep... We do have ducks and geese also and rabbits and turkeys... when my dh saw he could do this.. and things were working out despite the mishaps with neighbors dogs or sickness.. he went for broke and was buying like crazy.. lol.. one day we came home with like 15 sheep... I thought I would loose it. but it was not hard and once they got use to us they wee pretty nice. I have lots of do's and don'ts from experience... I will share if you like.. I broke down a few times...reason.. my dh got a few new sheep... thought to just put them in the yard.. and guess what, they ran for it.. we were chasing sheep for days...got most of them in one afternoon ... only for one to still give us a run for our $$... my dd finialy caught it, for it to only drag her and she let it go... I cried so hard... lmbo... all I remember saying was "I can not do this" over and over again... lol, lol so I mad my dh to promise to put new animals in a holding pen, to get use to the place and see what the established animals do... and to get a clean bil of health from the VET... that is once Do & Dont do...
