Hello! Thanks for looking at my page! We were running strong in 2008-2010 till a coon decided "we" were his favorite feeding ground. After loosing several of my favorite birds to THEM, we solved the problem with a live trap and a LGD. Mollie is a white german shepherd/pyrenees cross, she does great with the loose fowl. She barkes a LOT but we have not lost an animal since.
Projects? What projects? I keep out of trouble with work and chores. 2 kids and 4 grandies.. WooHoo!!
We had 4 sets of triplets this year out of 6 boer does. Great odds. So reguardless of the feed prices going up we kept most of the girls and a young buck. Making our total 10 does, 1 buck in the boer goat line and 3 does, 1 wether, 1 buck in the pygmys. We have 10 acres about a mile from the house we would like to build on maybe some day. In 2010 we put up a goat fence and had our goats on it most of the summer and fall- it really saved on the hay bill.
my yellow golden male also have the hen and a red golden pair.
I have a new pair of blue peafowl they will be 4 in 2012. The purple pair will be 3. I am looking forward to the excitement of finding the first eggs in late march or maybe april..
pic is of my old pair we no longer have
Need more chickens.. more eggs.. pretty chickens.. I will never own feather feeted chickens... Ohhh silkies are cute.. Silkies are broody MMMmm!! They can hatch my eggies!
Want Silkies-- PLay on BYC. SWAPS are fun!! Auctions are addictive! Hatching is like christmas everyday! I'm sorry I got carried away.
Hatched silkies and used them this last year, just for chicken eggs.
I had a white showgirl roo for awhile(sold him to a friend in w. ks- no space for winter) that I was putting with the splash silkie, getting blu to lav showgirls all summer. 2 of which I have kept for breeding next year. Hoping one is a roo to put with the white silkies. If not I'm getting a blue silkie roo from the same friend to breed with the splash and white silkies and the 2 showgirls if they turn out to be hens. Now theres a project!!

As for the quailies!! Well I just was looking for another white meated bird-the duckies are dark meated. Hubby only likes white!! Texas A&M are to have white meat? Not really white but dryer than I thought and yep hubby loves it, likes it better than chicken -yep!!
old mama muscovy has layed many a egg. We have 6 now- miss mollie loves their eggs-gona change their laying places come spring.
The bobwhites came from my brother in Greely Colo. he had some just starting to lay and was coming to Ks.(may 2008 ) he brought me some to hatch- now those are laying and I am hatching them to eat and turn loose as I am not at this time licienced to sell them. In KS you can raise to eat and turn loose on your land.
Hubby has a few new zealand rabbits and this is his fav roo..
a banty roo and his mate run loose on the farm. they sleep in the goat shed she hatched 7 out just a month ago..
Did I mention we both work 40 hrs a week and hubby moonlights doing construction small jobs..??
