    Sexing pet turkeys

    I have two pet Narragansett and Sweetgrass turkeys that are about 10 months old. I think they're both males but I'm not completely sure. They both get moody during the spring and start fighting sometimes. Otherwise they're best friends. Lemon (the Sweetgrass) is almost always puffed up and Ari...

    Are sheep or goats more picky?

    Hello, I am curious if Sheep or goats are more picky when it comes to soiled (like it touches the ground or gets poop in it) hay, slightly dirtied water, and other food, water, and mineral related things. Overall are sheep or goats easier to take care of? which ones are more fun? (in your opinion).

    Do Golden Phoenix's need any extra care?

    I'm not sure if this has been asked before but I searched the forums and couldn't find anything. I was just thinking that because they have long tails that drag on the ground, would they need any special care? Like bedding, feed, etc...? Wouldn't dirt and feces build up in it? Would I have to...

    Fighting Rooster Town Laws

    Hey I'm in Washington State and I want to know how to make a case and fight for the rights for roosters to be in town.

    How many Turkey's do you need for breeding?

    Okay, so I was wondering how many heritage turkeys would you need for them to live comfortably together and breed? I have heard people say 1 Tom to 5 hens and I've even heard 1 Tom to 15 hens. I'm not looking to breed for meat or anything. I was just wondering since one day I hope to have some...

    Hurtful words

    Idk if this post goes here. Well anyway... What do you say to people who say “chickens aren’t pets” ? Or if a chicken bites you and their immediate response is “eat him! Kill him!” Like one, yeaaa they are pets! And two, usually when an animal bites you it’s because you invaded their...
