OK, just regular old bird netting or does it come in different forms? I looked at Home Depot today but couldn't find any. There was a lot of things that said poultry fencing, either metal or plastic chicken wire but I didn't think that was the same stuff.

With the way that people like colored eggs I bet it won't take long before it is a breed.

Basically, if you already own property and then a city decides to restrict ownership of that property in some way, you do not have to get rid of your property that was legal before the code. You can no longer bring in that property if it was not already there because it would be banned. Say you had a classic car you were restoring and the city banned classic cars in city limits, you have not broken any law by having a classic and you can keep your classic but no one else would be allowed to own a classic car under the new regulation. The government is prohibited from "taking" property that way.

Also, if you have used your property for a specific purpose and the city decides not to allow the use of private property in that manner and bans it, you can continue to use your property as you always have but no one else can start the use of their property in that manner. Say you have an in-home daycare and the city bans in-home daycares, you will not have to lose your daycare but no one can start a daycare after the regulation is adopted.

There are cities that have banned pitbulls from living in city limits but Animal Control does not have a ban on dog breeds so they would not take away your pitbull no matter how many complained that they don't like pitbulls. The city can tell you to get rid of it but they have no authority to take it away. Once the dog dies you can not replace it but you can continue to keep your pet legally even though thete is now a code against it. The city can threaten to fine you or retaliate in other ways so you may decide not to keep your pitbull but legally they can't impose consequences for their actions that made you somehow guilty for something that was not prohibited already. If your pitbull bites someone, then Animal Control will require you to destroy the dog but that is true where there are no restrictions as well. As long as your pitbull is not a safety threat, you can keep it because you had it before the code was changed to no longer allow it.

There are alot of roosters that are grandfathered in cities all overthat decided to ban them due to their crowing. If you had your rooster before the ban, he can live out his life on your property but you can not bring in a new rooster. That is why we have more roosters than we really want, we had to keep them or lose the right to have them. We can still hatch and raise baby birds to maturity because they don't count but we can not bring in new adults so we kept more hens than we wanted as well. We had older hens that we are not replacing but we also kept young hens that we would have sold as pullets but had to keep or lose the right to have them.

Any opinion on hygromycin B vs fenbendazole based de-wormers? Hygromycin is officially approved to treat chickens, it looks like, but I don't really like dosing antibiotics willy nilly, and it seems to be more limited in the types of worms it kills. This is available in pellet form.

 

Fenbendazole is available in liquid (add to water) for goats and as a tube paste equine dewormer. This seems specific to worms while being broad-spectrum.

 

There is also liquid "Wazine" that is specific to adult roundworms.

I have decided on sheep. Now we need to finish moving in, get shelter built and get on a breeder wait list.

:thumbsup

 

Just so's ya know, tho....Raptors fly and seldom  are in the grass.

this one is my favorite:

More funnies:

 

 

%7B3a88d21a-1b1e-4b9b-bc8b-7d9674713919%7D_open-quotes-green.gifA dog walks into a bar and sits down on a stool. Everyone looks at him, but no one says anything. The bartender thinks this is a joke, but goes along with the gag. Bartender: "What do you want?" Dog: "Neat scotch." The bartender serves the drink. Dog: "What do I owe you?" Bartender: "$10.00." Dog pays the man, jumps off the stool and walks to the door. Bartender: "Come back soon. We don't get many talking dogs in here." Dog: "At these prices, I'm not surprised!"%7Bb5b1b472-a690-4fab-aab8-a1337adff190%7D_close-quote-green.gif
