    Hey guys!! I'm Relocating to Tennessee (chattanooga area) and want to find a good place for a homestead, within half hour of chattanooga, while staying in Tennessee. The crime rates don't look great, even in the country. Do you guys have suggestions of safe places to live around there? I've...

    That really does help. I just need to get a feel of what to truly expect. So far I've been reading the rare horror stories 😱 so I need to not be an extremist lol So do you think dogs would attract bears or deter them? Or irrelevant?

    Thank you! That's very encouraging! We actually have raccoons, hawks, opossums, fox, raccoons, and even eagles here so those are devils I'm familiar with. Are there a lot of stray dogs? I want to hike and bring our dogs but what I read about bears scared me from that 😳😄 i want to get a huge...

    These are the things I need to learn. In Illinois we don't describe things with elevation 😄 is all flat here. I assume being near a mountain and water and hilly land with, I assume, trees would attract all the large animals. So flat land with less trees and no water would hopefully be less...

    Thank you for your response! You don't go out on your property without being armed? Do you just conceal carry everywhere or are you that concerned? I've got kids, and I want them to have the country lifestyle I grew up with in Illinois, minus the below freezing temps. I'd hate to think it'd be...

    My family and I live in Illinois. Never lived anywhere else. We're considering moving somewhere more warm. We've started looking at the chattanooga tn area. Land is so cheap and we're hoping to have a large property with no neighbors, and our small farm. My problem is: All I can think about are...

    They're beautiful!! I would love to do a rescue like that 😍 I'd have to study an emus temperament I suppose. Like if raised to be sweet, can they have bad days? Do they have triggers? Are there warning signs? And they get along with all the other animals? They seem so sweet in the videos and...

    Thank you for the response! Yes that sounds about right 😆 We're currently in a subdivision that luckily allows chickens. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 rabbits, a gecko, 5 chickens, and 15 quail. We've outgrown suburbia lol I'd love to keep the rabbits in the pasture too so that's good to know...

    Mixing Species

    My family and I dream of having a small farm. We still have to buy land and a ton of research to do. I imagine us with 2 of each animal so they have companions. But I love the idea of keeping them all on one large pasture. With their own houses. And large barn.We already have chickens. We...

    How many urban chickens are you allowed?

    We are allowed 6 chickens in our city which OWN so grateful for because we do live in a neighborhood. With these uncertain times and food being limited, I'd like to try to raise that limit. I will be attending the board meeting via video conference, but I'd love some tips from anyone who has...

    Possible to train dog to quit attacking chickens?

    Thank you, guys! I'm just glad to hear it's not hopeless! Our other dog is 10yrs old and she's always been gentle with every animal we've ever had, including baby chicks and the chickens so this is all new to me. We got him at 8 weeks old and introduced him right away. He chased them and from...

    Possible to train dog to quit attacking chickens?

    We have a 7 month old puppy who is amazing in every way except... he chases and attacks the chickens. Have any of you successfully fixed this? I want to continue to free range them but I'd like him to be able to enjoy the backyard too. He has caught a chicken twice now and left no injuries...

    Clueless about emu but INTRIGUED

    Maybe that's why no one around here has them! I could definitely see needing a permit. That makes sense!
