Pheasantly Delighted, Quail Courted
After working at a quail farm on and off for 6 years I'm excited to start my own bird adventure.
I'm a mother;
finishing my high school diploma and looking for people who love birds as much as I do. I'm interested in all manner of animal husbandry and am looking at attending UVM in the fall for their farm extension program.
Currently at my home I have 3 dogs, 3 cats, a robin, a parrot, 3 horses and a lemur. Yes, a lemur.
Areas of Specific Interest:
- Quail I first got interested in farming after working with quail. From 2006 to 2010 I cared for and slaughtered 1600 quail a day with a crew of 5-10 others. I have experience with the slaughter and cutting of many different types of birds as well as a few un-winged creatures.
- Sheep "Yes, there is a Nirvana; it is in leading your sheep into a green pasture, in putting your kids to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem" -Kahil Gibran
- Herbs I'd like to grow these as well as other medicinal herbs.
