    I currently own a farm in North Wales. I've had it about a year now. I've always had chickens, ever since I was young. I now have a couple laying and breeding chickens. I currently do not have ducks due to no time. I also breed rare chickens. I always have Ayam Cemani's in stock. I sell the hatching eggs, chicks, hens and pairs. I only have pure ones and I do not either mix breeds or breed from related birds. I have 12 pens, all have 1 cock bird and 4 hens of Ayam Cemani's. I often let the birds sit on the eggs but I prefer incubating them then putting them in with a broody Ayam cemani. This way more hatch and it's almost natural. I used to have Burmese Bantams but I don't bother with them anymore as they need extra care.

    I also have turkeys, peafowl, guinea fowl, and even ostriches.

    I also have a field of dairy cows. I get loads of milk from these which I sell in my farm shop. I sell free range eggs(eggs from chickens, turkeys, osrich), I also sell meat, like chicken, beef, lamb and that kind of stuff.

    This business is really profitable, however I am still paying back my mortgages, university funds and other things.

    Hope you enjoyed it :):):)

    I cannot imagine a house pig [​IMG] But folks in my area cannot imagine backyard chickens!

    How do you deal with poops….? litter trained,? toilet trained? I'm pig ignorant. Not kidding, how do you house train a pig?
