Hi guys! I've got plans for bantams and nigerian goats all ready to go, but I have to convince my dad that there are more pros than cons. I'm gonna be arguing with a lawyer, so I want to be well prepared. Here's my list so far: Pros: 1) Goats would take care of the buckthorn bushes that are ever encroaching the yard. 2) We'd get fresh delicious milk (need to convince him goats milk isn't vile) 3) We wouldn't have to pay to have weed killer sprayed in the yard (I hate that) 4) We wouldn't have to pay for fertilizer for the gardens 5) We would get fresh little eggs from the bantams 6) Some of my younger siblings could try out 4-H 7) That nigerian dwarf kids aren't nearly as hard to sell as the unwanted kittens people keep dumping in our yard (except wethers) 8) That bantams would eat the dog ticks that infest our yard by the hundreds every spring (my friend does this and it works) 9) We could actually use our two acres of thick, nice grass and weeds for something Cons: 1) high start up costs 2) We'd have to buy hay and feed 3) We'd have to sell wethers and extra roosters, which might be hard. 4) Relatives will probably tease him You guys got any more?
